There is no denying the magic of movies, or escaping their immersive excitement. The impact they have on us can be uplifting. You can be inspired by a champion's saga, laugh away your blues with a rib-tickling comedy, or even live the thrills of futuristic worlds.
So wouldn't it be awesome to connect with this magic and your favorite characters on your PC every day? To start you off, here are 8 themes from blockbuster movies that you can add to your desktop and enjoy.
How to Install and Personalize A Desktop Theme
The themes showcased here do not need an external app to use them. Here's how you do it:
- Download your preferred theme to your Windows PC.
- Save the theme in a preferred folder. For example, you could just create a new Themes folder in the Pictures folder on your PC and save all your themes there.
- Double-click on the theme pack file and it would be installed on your Windows PC.
You can also customize and extend the theme beyond the desktop. For instance, you can choose accent colors to match your theme. Here's how:
- Right-click anywhere on your desktop.
- Select Personalize to open the Personalization settings
- Select Colors and under the header Choose your accent color, check the option Automatically pick an accent color from my background. The system will then automatically set a color theme based on the colors of the current wallpaper.
Additionally, you could also have the same color theme on your Taskbar, Start Menu and Action Center, and also the Title Bars and Windows Borders. Simply scroll down to the bottom of the Colors page in Settings and check the two boxes under Show accent colors on the following surfaces.
Moreover, since using a custom desktop theme involves altering default colors and files, it is better to create a restore point before installing a theme. So if you find that some things are not working properly, you can always revert to the previous state using the restore point.
