15+ Best Windows 10 Themes

The design language that govern’s Microsoft’s desktop operating system has kept with the times for the most part. The controversial precursor to the current iteration of Windows might have been a step in the wrong direction in the opinion of a riveting majority, but many fans agree that its new look wasn’t one of its many missteps. Windows 10 has, so far, received rave reviews from critics and users alike, for both its UI and its selection of features.

Still, the geek in us always finds a way to tempt us with customization, and for every other recreational software tinkerer, customization of the cosmetic nature often takes a place at the top of the to-do list. Whether it’s out of sheer boredom from looking at the same design each day, to give the OS an aesthetic that one finds pleasing, or simply to make it one’s own, many a user will ultimately turn to third-party themes, or visual styles, as the theming community calls them.

Now, looking for third-party themes isn’t always easy, and finding good ones is almost never so, which is why we’ve decided to compile a list of our favorites from around the web. For now, this list comprises some of the best Windows 10 themes from the DeviantArt community, with quite a majority from veteran visual style designer neiio. Windows 10 is still young, so there are bound to be more themes on the way. We’ll be sure to update this post with great new themes as we come across them. Feel free to suggest your own favorites in the comment section below!

Note: You’ll have to patch your system before you’re able to apply third-party themes. If you aren’t familiar with the process, follow our guide on how to install third-party themes on Windows 10. We’ll be trying to keep our list updated with themes for the latest build of Windows 10. Be sure to check each theme’s compatibility with your version of Windows 10. To check you Windows 10 build number, press the Windows and R keys together to bring up the Run dialogue box and enter winver.
