Windows 7+ Theme Installer by Kishan-Bagaria Windows 7+ Theme Installer by Kishan-Bagaria

UPDATE: New app has been coded from scratch and contains many improvements



Download Link



Windows 7+ Theme Installer is a freeware from door2windows which lets you easily install new 3rd party themes, apply & delete existing themes in Windows 7, Windows 8 & Windows 8.1.

How To Use:


Run the app. On the first run, it will ask if you want to patch the UXTheme files. Patching is required if you want to use 3rd party themes. If you haven't already patched the files (or if you are not sure), click Yes. After some time Windows will automatically log off indicating the patching has been done. Login and run the app again.

To install new themes:
  1. Click the ... button after .theme and browse for the theme file.
  2. If the theme you want to install comes with replaceable system files, click the ... button after the name of the system files and browse for the system file. In Windows 7, instead of TwinUI.dll, options to change Explorer.exe, ExplorerFrame.dll and OobeFldr.dll are available. The app will automatically make sure that the system file which you choose is of the correct Windows version and architecture.
  3. After you have selected the .theme file and the system files that you want to replace, click Install Theme & System Files.
  4. Windows Explorer will automatically restart and the theme and system files will be installed. Select the new theme in the list and click Apply Theme to apply the theme.
To restore the default system files just click Restore Default System Files.

To apply/delete existing themes, select any theme in the Installed Themes list and click Apply Theme/Delete Theme.

One request/issue: There is no way to pick a name for installed themes beyond modifying the actual theme files themselves in a text editor. I like how clean and quick this program is to use except for the fact that I can't choose what I want to name the theme when I install it.

Until then I sadly have to keep using other software to do this instead. :(

I'll implement the rename theme feature in the next update of the app.

Not that I'm stupid, but honestly. Download manager? RLY? Trying to convince me to install tones of crap and in the end saying "no internet connection". No doubt those "useful" programs would download faster than light.
