Set windows Theme

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

I didn't find a topic concerning this issue.

I want to change the windows theme to classic. Not just for one window or while an application is running but for good.

It is probably possible by changing a lot of entries in the registry, but that I would rather use the windows api.

Thanks in advance

If you wish to set the default Windows XP Theme to classic via the registry, but NOT to force, set the key below.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]

"SetVisualStyle"="C:\\WINDOWS\\Resources\\Themes\\Windows Classic.theme"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ThemeManager]
"ThemeActive"="0"

Disclaimer: Making any alterations incorrectly to the Registry can cause serious issues with you operating system, and may result in a reinstallation. Use the information we provide at your own risk. Also follow our registry backup procedure.
