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
