    Hi, have you applied your theme like this?

    - just tried- from the site you quote
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/13992
    it's as easy as clicking the Download url, then opening the file- it's applied almost instantly.

    Have you tried clicking the theme you want to be applied here?

    Try creating a new user for test purposes and try the same thing. This will determine if somehow your user profile is corrupt.

    Also try in Safe Mode logged in as your normal user.

    At least that rules out a Windows problem.

    Try that account in Safe Mode.

    Ok so I decided to just make a new account on my PC, it was kind of a mess but I fixed it. I think my old Windows account got corrupted. Thanks for your help.

    Ok, good luck.

    Having system restore on can help; there is a tutorial about how to have that run from a scheduled task.

    We also strongly recommend the routine use of disk imaging so you can restore all of Windows and its partitions as it was at a specific date when you created an image. E.g. Macrium Reflect (free) - image sets can be kept up to date and be of any disks or partitions.

    These can give you a second chance without technical help.
