How to install

  • From source

For newer DEs that are not yet fully covered (cinnamon 3.2, gnome 3.22, etc.) use this link instead (no checksum)

  1. Head to the releases page
  2. Download the latest release (as of 10/26/2016 latest is v0.9.9 SP1)
  3. Open your file manager and navigate to your home folder. If nonexistant, create the .themes and .icons folder. Enable the 'view hidden files' option to work with them. Generally, Ctrl+H reveals the hidden folders
  4. Extract the packages and place the resulting folders (named Windows 10 Light and Windows 10 Dark) in the .themes folder. The Icon set should be placed in .icons once extracted
  5. You're all set! Open your appearance manager and select the corresponding themes from the list
