Install Themes on Windows 10 TH2


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.

Google Drive - DOWNLOAD LINK

2. Install UltraUXThemePatcher_3.0.4 from the extracted folder. It won’t work yet!


3. Open the Take Ownership REG files folder and run Add_Ownership.reg and press yes through the prompts. (Important step)

4. Open the Theme Patcher extracted folder in another window.

5. Click Windows + R or search Run in the start menu, click it, and type C:\Windows\System32


Note: Use the File Patch x64 folder if you have a 64-bit computer, and the File Patch x32 folder if you have a 32-bit computer.


6. Go to C:\Windows\ and right click the System32 folder, then press Take Ownership.

6. Find “themeui.dll” and right click, then click Take Ownership. Right click again and press Rename, then name it “themeui.dll.backup”

7. Find “uxinit.dll” and right click, then click Take Ownership. Right click again and press Rename, then name it “uxinit.dll.backup”

8. Find “uxtheme.dll” and right click, then click Take Ownership. Right click again and press Rename, then name it “uxtheme.dll.backup”


9. Find “themeui.dll” from the File Patch folder and drag it into System32

10. Find “uxinit.dll” from the File Patch folder and drag it into System32

11. Find “uxtheme.dll” from the File Patch folder and drag it into System32

Everything should be ready to go!
