Create Your Own XP Themes and Find Thousands Online

Customize the way XP looks and sounds, and dress it up with themes from the best sites on the Internet.

Themes control just about every part of the way XP looks and sounds, including its background wallpaper, colors, icons, cursors, sounds, fonts, and screen saver, as well as the visual style of its windows and buttons. By default, your computer uses the basic Windows XP theme, which some people refer to as Luna because it was called that during XP’s development. You can apply countless themes to XP, though it ships with only two: the basic Windows XP theme and the Windows Classic theme—a more stolid-looking theme, based on older versions of Windows, which uses rectangular windows and solid colors.
