How To Change The Theme In Windows Vista The one good thing about Windows Vista Themes is that customization is entirely possible. And when you can customize you can naturally personalize. That’s right. Vista allows you to select your own themes in a few easy steps. This allows you to tinker with your computer to make it more attractive and less monotonous – when you want it and how you want it.
A Windows Vista theme is simply a group of customized tweeks that span the entire gamut of menu appearance, icons, colors, fonts, screen savers, background, and yes – even paints!
Let’s start with your desktop because it’s the most logical place to start. To select a desktop theme, perform the following steps:
• go to your desktop. In any blank area, right click.
• scroll down to “personalize” and click.
• a dialogue box will come up that says: “Personalize appearance and sounds.” Right below it are seven headers. Choose “theme” which is the sixth item, or second to the last item.
• a dialog box appears with the title “theme settings.”
• under “theme”, you have a small box with a drop down menu. If you click on the arrow, Windows Vista gives you four choices: current theme, Windows Vista, Windows Classic and browse (the browse option allows you to get a theme that you saved in a specific folder. When you choose browse, Vista automatically takes you to your downloads folder where you saved the theme).
• when you click on any of the four choices, you get a preview of the theme. Choose one by clicking “apply” or “OK”. If you don’t like any of what you see and decide to stick to what you have, simply click “cancel” or close the dialog box.
Windows Vista Themes: Few Things Worth Noting
• Windows Vista does not come with a large pre-built bundle of themes. This shouldn’t stop you from creating your own. You can still change the background (or wallpaper), colors, screen saver and how your menu will look. Save what you’ve created by clicking the Save As button. This button is in the dialog box we mentioned earlier called “Theme Settings.”
• Don’t confuse Windows Vista themes with the pre-built themes in Word 2007, Power Point 2007 and Excel 2007. Each of these programs has its own themes bundle.
• If you happen to like a theme you saw on the Web, make sure that your virus program is up-to-date before you download a theme. Some viruses are disguised as themes so be careful.
Remember that even if Word, Excel, and PowerPoint already have predefined document themes, you can create your own by customizing an existing document theme and then saving it as a custom document theme.
If you’re really into themes and like to create your own for fun, then you must be a “skinning fan” (themes are sometimes called skins). According to Andy Rathbone, noted Windows expert, you can use a third party program like WindowBlinds and can download any theme they have at a very modest fee. What’s even better is some of these themes are free. By typing “Windows Vista Themes” in any search engine, you’ll get a whole array of company names that specialize in Vista themes. But like we said, be careful when downloading.

Vista theme changes to windows classic upon restart


Are you wondering how to change the theme back to the "Vista Theme?" If so open "Theme Settings" by clicking the "Start" button, clicking "Control Panel," clicking "Appearance and Personalization," clicking "Personalization," and then clicking "Theme," then choose your desired theme.
If you've done this already, then you have a problem, usually when your appearance settings won't stay the way you want them to, and they keep revering to something else, it means that you have a virus on your machine.
To fix this you can try several things, try booting up in safe mode, and then restarting your computer.
You can reinstall Vista, by using the "Install discs" that came with your machine.
Hope this helps!

How to apply vista thems


Righ click with your mouse on an empty area of your desktop and select "Personalize" from
the ensuing menu. You'll be shown the Control Panel window. You'll also see, next to the bottom, an entry called "Theme". Clicking here takes you to another window where there's a drop list from which you choose the theme you're after.
If the one you want is not listed, then select "Browse". You'll be presented with a
familiar interface where you are to locate the theme you just installed. I ignore whether
there's a default location, or whether at the time you installed the downloaded themes you
were given an option to install to a certain directory. If so, then browse to this
directory and select the theme to wish to display.
Clicking on any selection displays a small desktop view of what your new theme will look
like. If you like it, click on "Apply" and then Ok.
Good luck!

How do i download themes for windows vista basic and where do i download them to?


HI,

You can download them free from this site:
http://vista-themes.net/
Kindly note that it is always advised to have an antivirus on the computer to ensure safe internet browsing experience.

Once you have selected the theme that you require, download and save it on any folder you may desire.
Once the download is finished, go to the location of the file and execute the theme file.
It may start an installer, allow it.
once the theme is installed,
Goto control panel.
click "personalization"
Then Click on "Theme".
you will find a pop up window. In that window click the Theme Drop down.

Select the newly installed file and it will change the layout of your computer.

Once done, dont forget to click "Apply" and then "OK".

Hope this works for you.

Best Regards,
Techno-Geek.

How to install window vista theme?


it depends on what kind of file you downloaded...it can get tricky when you download themes, because sometimes you're actually downloading themes that HAVE to go through "windows blinds" program or such...so first, check what kind of file it is, if it's a .theme file than you're set, all you have to do is right click on the desktop, then click on properties, then on the first tab, click the little arrow next to where it says "themes" and go down to the buttom of the list where it says "browse" then simply find the file you downloaded (assuming it's .theme) and open it, then you can select it in the drop down box and click ok....your set.
