Chapter 4. Customizing Windows Using the... > Changing the Desktop Appearance

Changing the Desktop Appearance

You can change the entire appearance of the desktop by using desktop themes. A desktop theme changes the desktop background, screen saver, mouse pointers, sounds, icons, and fonts based on a set theme, such as baseball, science, sports, travel, or underwater. You can even change your desktop to the classic Windows look. You can use one of the predefined desktop themes or create your own. If a theme isn't exactly what you want, you can change the appearance of colors, fonts, and sizes used for major window elements such as title bars, icons, menus, borders, and the desktop itself.

Select a Desktop Theme

Right-click a blank area on the desktop, and then click Properties.

Click the Themes tab.

Click the list arrow, and then click a theme.

Click OK or Apply.
