How to Change Theme on Windows 11 or 10?

Talking about Windows 11, you will find six beautiful themes pre-installed on your system: Windows (light), Windows (dark), Glow, Captured Motion, Sunrise, and Flow. The number of wallpapers depends on the themes. For example, the light and dark themes include only one wallpaper, while other themes include four wallpapers each. Now irrespective of the version, the Windows system comes with the light theme set by default. However, it will switch to dark mode if you apply the same.

The light theme, for some users, may seem pretty basic. If this is the case with you, there is an option to change the theme and choose one from the options available in the settings app. However, if you don’t like any of those themes, you can get new ones downloaded from the Microsoft Store or some other third-party applications.
