Double click on the zip folder on the desktop when the window opens click on Extract All Files.
Themes-customaero.zip.png

In the address field make sure it says desktop and click on the Extract button.

Open that folder and put both 1 theme folder and 1 .theme file in C/Windows/Resources/themes now it should be in Personalize as customaero

I'm getting error when I try to extract it. The error is. Compressed (zipped) Folders was unable to create the specific directory. Ensure that the directory does not already exist and the path entered is valid.

Download 7-Zip and install it. Make sure you get the right version 32 bit or 64-bit.

To tell what version you have in the start menu right-click on computer go to properties.

Look for system type.

After you have installed the right version right click on the zip folder go down to 7-zip and then over to and click on Extract Here see if that will extract that zip.
