You will need to take a screenshot of 1 or 2 of the blue & white shadows so I can see it.

Here you go download and open the zip folder and open the folder inside of it and put the two in C/Windows/Resources/Themes
It will show up in the Personalization as Rose1
Remove shadow Icon Boxes-untitled.jpg
Look at the screenshot it tells you what & where to put them. There is 1 Rose1 theme folder & 1 Rose1.theme file put both in C/Windows/Resources/Themes
Then Go to Personalization & click on Rose1
