Everyone personalizes their computer to a certain degree, ranging from screensavers, desktop background & Icons, mouse pointers, colors and so forth. And all this Is accessed and achieved via the Windows built-In Theme Settings. If you're the type who switches from one theme to another quite often, In this tutorial, I will show you how to create a Theme Settings shortcut on your computer's desktop.
Before I begin, here's what I'm referring to. To access the Theme Settings, normally you'd have to navigate to Windows Settings > Personalization > Themes > Theme Settings. It's then available as per the Image below.
From here, you have access to all the aforementioned settings and options. The question Is, why go through so many directories, when you can achieve the same result with a simple click of the mouse? That's where this tutorial comes Into action, by creating a Theme Settings shortcut on your desktop. The process Is very easy, so let's get this started.
Right-click on a blank area on your desktop, and then select New > Shortcut as Illustrated below.
Next, In the Type the location of the Item Input field, enter the following command.
Then hit Next to continue.
Now you have to give your shortcut a name. It can be anything you like. For the purpose of this tutorial, I've named mine Windows 10 Tips Theme Settings. Hit Finish to finalize the process.
And here's the Theme Settings shortcut sitting on my desktop. Let's double-click It and see the result.
Just as expected, It's executed accordingly. As you can see, I have access to desktop Icons, mouse pointers, a selection of themes etc.
Nothing beats the convenience of accessing options and settings with a click of the mouse, on a given shortcut Irrespective how often you do/do not access It. Unless your desktop Is absolutely cluttered with Icons (which you shouldn't let It get to that stage), It makes perfect sense to apply the Theme Settings shortcut. It only takes less than a minute, so there's no reason not to.
