When it comes to customizing Windows, choice is quite abundant. You can change icons, add widgets and gadgets, apply cool wallpapers and so on. But the customization also has to be functional. For this reason, third-party themes commonly found on sites like DeviantART are usually the best way to change aesthetics without compromising on functionality. They work as a central force that pulls everything together and bring an effective improvement to the stock Windows feel. In this post, we’ve complied a list of 40 best Windows 8 themes that are created by various DeviantART users.

How To Apply Third-Party Windows 8 Themes

Before we go further, let me first explain how to apply these themes. Windows 8, just like Windows 7 and its predecessors, doesn’t allow users to install unsigned third-party themes. One needs to modify three system files first – namely themeui.dll, Uxlnit.dll and uxtheme.dll – before installing any theme file. Luckily, there are a few Windows applications available on the internet that let you easily patch these files.

UltraUXThemePatcher is the best one from the lot. All you have to do is install it on your system and it will automatically modify the required items. Once you’ve installed the app, you can download any of the themes from our Windows 8 themes list below and copy the .theme file to:

C:\ Windows\ Resources\ Themes
