Computer Geeks mostly use Windows over any operating system due to its easy interface and user-friendly interfaces. Microsoft is popular in the market for the interface basically ( We know about their security 😋). Window 10 has very good reviews for their UI but there are many critics also who said Windows 10 not good with default Windows 10 theme. That’s why people look for Windows 10 custom themes.
We can do many tweaks with default Windows 10 theme like the mouse pointer, wallpapers or anything basic things but are you satisfied with that? My answer is no. After few days of Windows 10 launch, I started to look for best Windows 10 themes and found many ones including inbuilt Windows 10 dark theme.

Why you need a custom theme for Windows 10 from the third party?
There are many default themes available for Windows 10. But you can’t do many things with that themes which are really not good for a computer geek. A computer geek does not want to change wallpapers on Mouse pointers only. They need a lot more.
This is the reason third party Windows custom themes are becoming favorite in the market. With the custom theme you can change each and everything in the UI or we can say we can do a man it to it’s with UI elements. You can change Windows control button looks, style or you can customise dialogue boxes.
Microsoft doesn’t like that we installed a Windows 10 theme which is not signed by Microsoft due to security issues. By the way, we should appreciate Microsoft that they updated Windows 10 a lot to remove its each and every bug. That’s why they don’t like customisation with their themes.
If you don’t want to hurt Microsoft intentions 😀 then you can visit Microsoft site where they have provided a lot of free themes including categories like landscapes, nature, bikes, architecture etc. But you have to remind that there are very limited features in those free themes.
You may be wondered why Microsoft is so strict with third party themes which are available free on the Internet. Microsoft wants to protect your peace is from any type of viruses and malware as which are available on the mostly free themes available on the internet. This is the reason which given by Microsoft for restricting third party themes. But actually I think, they are not sure with their own security. Be like Linux 😜.
The Internet is full of many bad websites, So you have to be aware whenever you download a theme from third-party sites. In my opinion, the best way to recognized a product from third party site.is its community. If many people are recommending it then you don’t have to worry about it.
