Themes are an important component of the interface of any operating system platform and have a great influence on the overall user experience. On Windows 11, you just need to do a few simple steps to change and customize the theme of the operating system, thereby getting a new experience.
How to customize and change themes in Windows 11
To get started, right-click on an empty area of the desktop and select
“Personalize” in the context menu appears.
Immediately, you will be taken to the Personalization settings screen in the Settings Windows application. Here, you can quickly change the theme by clicking a corresponding thumbnail in the “Click a theme to apply” section at the top of the window.
This is also a great way for you to switch between the light and dark background themes on the operating system quickly when needed.
If you want to save a custom theme, see all available themes, or download new themes, scroll down and click “Themes”.
In Windows 11, a custom theme is a combination of personalization settings related to shape, accent color, dark or light mode, mouse pointer style, and sound scheme. You can set each of these aspects individually in their respective settings.
At the same time, Windows 11 also provides quick links to each setting item at the top of the Personalization > Themes page. To set it up, simply click on the “Background”, “Color”, “Sounds” or “Mouse Cursor” items. Each link will take you to the respective settings page, where you can set those options.
If you’ve previously set up a custom background image or modified the sound scheme, accent color, or cursor style, there’s an option that allows you to save your personalization pack as a custom theme under Personalization > Themes. Just click the “Save” button as shown below.
Then Windows will ask you to name the theme. Enter a name and click “Save” again. Your custom theme will appear in the list of themes below.
You can expand the “Current Theme” menu. There, you will see thumbnails of each available theme, arranged in order. In each thumbnail, you’ll see a preview of that theme. Click on any thumbnail to select it, and the corresponding theme will automatically be applied.
To install new themes from the Microsoft Store, click the “Browse Themes” button.
The Microsoft Store app will open to the “Themes” section. If you want to download a free theme for your PC, click the “Free” button located under the theme’s name.
Alternatively, you can also purchase paid themes with your Microsoft account.
We wish you a satisfactory interface.
