Windows 7: Can you change a saved theme?

Can you change a saved theme?

Hi all,

I set up a theme the other day that I'm pretty happy with. I honestly can't remember every facet of what I put in there, but it's working for me -- well, all but one thing. I want to change the color of the window borders.

I went into personalization and saw where I could do it. Problem? When I changed it to what I want it to be and hit "save changes," it creates a whole new theme.

Since, like I said, I can't remember every facet of what I put in my original saved theme, I don't want to have to start over from scratch if I can help it. Is there NOT a way to modify an existing saved theme?

Thanx,
Jamie

There is no easy way to do it but it is possible, the new theme that was made still contains all of your previous changes but because you added to it you need to save it again, the easiest thing to do is right click on your old theme and delete it and then save your new one with the same name.

Oh, really? So the new one that's created when I make an adjustment will have everything I did previously, without me having to add those settings again? That's... odd. Why not just allow users to be able to modify a theme once they've set it up? Gotta love MS...

Thanx for the advice!
