    How use a theme in Windows 10 from Windows 7?

    I just started a clean install of Windows 10 and would like to use a theme that was available in Windows 7 (it might have been a Dell theme). Suggestions please?

    It is easy to create your own themes from a single image or perhaps a group of images. I have several installed.

    You just need to search for images you wish to use and collect them together in a single folder and then get Windows to use them as a theme. You set your own options, cursor, sounds, frequency they change etc. Once done you can export the theme to save and use again on a new PC.

    Thank you for the information. However, I have used the theme I want for many years and would like to retrieve it if possible.

    I guess only you knows what kind of theme it was... have you tried an image search on Bing/Google to locate it ?

    Searching for 'W10 Dell themes' brings stuff up... you are going to have to do some legwork and try and locate images you remember.

    I have downloaded a few Windows 7 Themes that work just fine on W10.

    Please provide us with the name of it and we can go from there. :)

    You could try AeroGlass, but use at your own risk as it inserts DLLS into the system. I've used it in the past on Windows 7.
