How to Install Themes from the Store in Windows 10

information   Information
In Windows, you can use themes to help make your desktop feel a little more personal. Themes change the desktop background, colors, sounds, screen saver, and pointers on your PC all at once, and you can switch between themes as often as you like.

Starting with Windows 10 build 14951, you can now download and install themes for Windows 10 from the Store.

Starting with Windows 10 build 15014, you can also click/tap on the Get more themes online link at the bottom of the themes setting page to install themes from the Store.

This tutorial will show you how to download and install themes from the Store to be available for all users in Windows 10.

Themes downloaded from the Store get installed in the C:\Program Files\WindowsApps folder as other.



Here's How:

1. Open the Store app.

2. Click/tap on the Apps tab at the top of the Store, and click/tap on the Top apps button. (see screenshot below)
