    A software installation changed the theme to windows basic

    My windows 7 computer was working absolutely fine but a simple software installation has changed my applied theme to windows basic. Now I want to revert all the changes back to original custom settings but don't know the procedure. What should i do to fix the same?

    If you want to revert the changes then right click on the desktop of your windows 7 computer and choose the "Personalize" option. After clicking on the same, you will see your original background theme(which was working before the installation of software) with name "Unsaved Theme". Simply click on it to apply the same theme back again in your windows 7.

    Sometimes it happens with the very small program installations, rarely with the more famous softwares,
    that the installation writes codes which change, theme, background,power saving setup etc, and change that to it's choice,

    Themes can be reverted to the previous one quite easily, but other things need manual intervention.

    Right click DESKTOP > PERSONALIZE> select the desktop theme you want > APPLY.

    HELLO FRIEND ,

    Its not a problem at all don't worry,its the software which doesn"t support the heme you are currently using.

    it will automatically change when the software closes..or if it doesn't you can also change it manually

    by right clicking on the desktop and go to personalize...

    Many games such as GTA:San andreas also does this..


    ALL THE BEST
