    For the most part yes. I haven't tried any theming on 10 yet. When it is final you should have more options.

    Your best bet for theming is go to Deviant Art and pick a complete theme.
    Things to watch out for is before downloading:
    • Are you looking for a skin or a theme? Look for "Visual Styles" XP for 8.1(until 10 RTM comes out) there might be some glitches here and there but you can play around for now.
    • For Windows 10 right now you can try one for Windows 8.1(It worked for me)
    • Is it zip or RAR (use 7 zip it can open both)
    • Make sure the artist has comments turned on(if they are turned off & doesn't allow comments, that should be a warn signal)
    • Read ALL comments through
    • Best is pick one that has a brief description of install instructions(more thorough come with the download)
    • After downloading check the file with your Anti Virus and (Very Very highly recommended Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and I always check it a third time using Windows MRT scanner( Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool) justtype in search MRT.
    • If everything comes up clean, before you start skinning---MAKE A SYSTEM IMAGE!!!!!! and make sure it can reimage...

    Here is one that does a good XP
    Another one to look at
