    Thank you Shawn for your help!

    The actual name I had given the new theme had a space in it so, I quoted the path in the policy window.

    I renamed the theme to not have spaces and I moved it to c:\Theme\newTheme.theme

    Now when I create a new user, either Admin or standard, the new user gets the desired theme on initial login.

    Thank you very much for your prompt, accurate and helpful reply to my post!

    Hey Shawn, I happened to come across a similar problem that someone else was having. They posted it on either page 1 or 2.

    Whenever I restart my computer Windows 7 will automatically create an unsaved theme that replaces my current saved theme (I still have my saved theme there its just not the one being used). I'm using a video animation for a background, and the reason that the unsaved theme that is automatically being used instead of my other saved theme is quite annoying is because it causes all my icons text to appear as black and unreadable on my black background. Is their any way to possibly change which theme windows 7 will use upon start-up. I've tried deleting the other theme, etc, but it gets created over and over again upon start-up.

    Hello BlackViper, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    It may be a issue with the animated background, but you might see if doing either tutorial below may be able to help.

    (Set your theme, and prevent it from being changed.)
    Theme - Allow or Prevent Changing

    (Specify your theme to be the default)
    Theme - Specify Default Theme to Load for New Users

    Hope this may help,

    Hello Rim, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    By default the Windows 7 Starter and Home Basic editions do not have the Personalization features included in them, such as changing and saving themes.

    You could use Option Two in the tutorial below to be able to change the desktop background and theme in Windows 7 Home Basic though.
    To save and use custom themes in Windows 7 Home Basic, you would need to use a 3rd party program like the pay for WindowsBlinds.

    Hope this helps,

    I had the problem that 'Unsaved Theme' did not appear when I had changed e.g. the color or intensity.
    This prevented me from saving the new theme. The new settings re-appered after reboot, though.
    The cause was that the file 'Custom.theme' in 'C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Themes'
    was marked as 'ReadOnly'. Removing this attribute, solved my problem.

    Hy! I was wondering... If I have a selected theme. How can I move between pictures in my desktope without using right click?

    Hello Niet, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    You could create a desktop slideshow to have different desktop background images shuffle as often as you like automatically.

    Hope this helps,
