    I did a great deal of Themeing in Windows 7 so just follow the directions. Let us know.

    OK, so I downloaded the latest version of uxstyles and installed it. I also clicked on the download button in the top right corner, but there is no folder called "XP Folder" in the download they are offering. There is only a folder called "XP Themes for Windows 10". I have tried copying it into the themes folder and went to my desktop and clicked personlize and clicked on XP Luna but it looks nothing like on the pictures. It basically just changes my wallpaper to the XP wallpaper as well as changing the color on my taskbar to a dark blue color that doesn't look like the XP color.

    - is your PC Aero compatible (has to have Aero stylesheet)
    - are you on Build 10240, 10586 or 14393 only
    - did you run UXStyles as admin and reboot after
    - did you revert to Windows default theme before you started
    - most say you need to run 'StartIsBack' for taskbar to skin

    Hi there

    any chance of getting the LUNA BLACK theme to work - especially with the 3-D effect on tool bars etc.



    Here's the XP (on a VM) with a modified background picture

    Looking on Virtual Customs it seems that the theme you use has to match the Windows 10 version you are on. It is not a one size fits all thing with Windows 10.

    You may want to try this one. Remove the first before doing so.
