Applying a third party theme

Can you apply a third party theme? This must be a question popping out your head and the answer for the question is “Yes”. As the Windows 8 doesn’t allow the addition of third party theme by default, you need to modify three system files, themeui.dll, Uxlnit.dll, and uxtheme.dll. With the help of UltraUxThemePatcher you can easily patch any themes.

You just need to simply download the application and then follow some few installation options popped out on your screen in the dialogue box. After that you need to restart your system so that changes can take place in your system.

So now let us look at different beautiful and cool themes available for your Windows 8, devianArt is considered as one of the best place to look for great themes.
