Windows 10: How Do I Prevent 'Themes Settings' Popping Up When Switching Themes?

    How Do I Prevent 'Themes Settings' Popping Up When Switching Themes?


    I pinned to my start menu 2 shortcuts to 2 windows themes to easily switch between the 2 themes. But the problem is when I switch to a theme, the Themes Settings window pops up. I dont want that. How can I prevent that from popping up when I switch themes??

    Hi @yahanna (again)

    Was thinking of your problem with themes switching, and came across Winaero theme switcher. It can be run from command prompt, so you can make shortcut and put your theme name into the link:
    complete target name is: location and name of themeswitcher (Windows will do it for you) and location and name of theme. - this should work without location, but wasn't for me. Also you can check Windows 8 compatibility.
    Target:
    "E:\Downloads\WinaeroThemeSwitcher\Windows 8\ThemeSwitcher.exe" C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\moja.theme
    The syntax is as follows:
    ThemeSwitcher.exe path_to_file.theme

    e.g., to apply the Windows 8's "Earth" theme, you can run the following command:
    themeswitcher.exe c:\Windows\Resources\Themes\theme1.theme
    Click image for larger version.

    Hope this will work.

    I'm somewhat confused by your reply. Will the ThemeSwitcher program prevent the Thmes Settings window from popping up everytime I switch between themes?

    FYI I just dont want to install any programs to do that. I want to do it withouit using any downloaded programs. Let me know. Thanks.

    Yes, Themeswitcher will change themes without settings popup, I've tried it out. No need to install this program, it's portable, you just make a shortcut with it with the command in it, like shown above.

    If you don't want to use it, it's your choice.. For now, I don't know how to do what you want with Windows alone. Will let you know, if something comes along.
