If you have downloaded tried themes in your Windows 10 computer, then you know that all the themes keep piling up in Windows. It seems very easy to install the theme by downloading a “.theme” file and double-clicking on it, but Windows does not really tell you about deleting the themes.

  1. Open Control Panel by pressing the hotkey Win+X and then selecting Control Panel from the menu that shows up.
  2. In the Control Panel, select Appearance and Personalization and then Personalization.Delete Themes from Windows 10
  3. Under My Themes you will find all of your themes that you have installed using the downloaded .theme files or by making changes to the existing themes. If you want to delete a theme you are currently using, then first set a different theme by clicking on its thumbnail.
