Windows XP Default theme deleted

Started up my computer and it was operating with the Windows Classic theme. A bit disconcerting because I hadn't changed it, so I decided I'd change it back. The Windows XP theme seems to be gone from my computer. I'm running Windows XP Media Center. Help! I want my theme back.

This happened to me once on my other computer, I don't know what caused it, maybe service pack 2 that I installed but I don't know. Anyway i just rebooted and then the themes were back and I could change it again.

I hope this helps

    if that didn't work try restoring your computer to an earlier date when it was working as you liked it. Go to Start>acessories>system tools> system restore and select a date when you know your comptuer was working correctly. After the computer reboots this should be reolved. I hope this helps

Themes are not working


I can just guess , as there's not much information, I wonder if you have changed the graphics adapter settings from 32-bit to 16-bit ? or have chosen an alternate theme ?
right-click desktop and select personalize
click window color and appearance
click open classic appearance
select scheme and apply .

if you have a independent graphics card please go into the menu and make sure it's set at 32 bit color . good luck

How to fix windows xp look that shoud egzist in my sys. anymore,it only can wiew in classic windows mode


You want XP to look like when you first got it and not in classic mode, am I correct? If that is the case, do the following:

  • Right click on your desktop and select Properties
  • Go to Themes tab and select Windows XP and press Enter
That should bring you back your screen. If that did not help, then do the following:

  • Right click on my computer and select Properties
  • Click the Advanced tab
  • Select Visual Effects tab
  • Chose either Adjust for best appearance or you can let Windows decide what's best for your system.
Finally, if that does not work go into Control Panel --> select Administrative Tools --> Services. Look for Themes in Services to make sure that is is both set to Automatic and that the services is started.

My system was chenged the instal of xp theme original window,but it opens only in classic window


Right click on the desktop anywhere that there are no icons. Click on 'Properties' at the bottom of the menu that will have appeared. By default you will be at the window to set your theme. In the Theme field, click on the dropdown button at the right side of the field and select the Windows XP theme. Click apply and then OK to close the window.

Good luck, and please let me know how this works out for you.
