Install Themes on Windows 10 November Update/TH2/10586

Theme patching does not work out of the box for Windows 10 after the November Update/TH2/10586. You will need to modify some system files, so make a system backup before preceding if you want to reverse the effects completely.

1. Download the Theme Patcher zip from Google Drive then extract it.
