  • Right click on the desktop/Properties/Themes/ Select your theme in the menu box.
  • Right click on the desktop/Properties/Appearance tab/ scroll through the menu box below "Windows and buttons"/choose the theme: Windows XP Style and Apply.



If the theme is missing then:
C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes\Luna
  • Go to the My Computer
  • Click on drive C:\ (drive where your operating system is installed)
  • Then click the Windows folder C:\Windows
  • Finally, select the Themes folder, and place the uncompressed file
