    Make sure your system is activated.
    Try run Windows Update and download and install all updates.
    Restart your PC and try again.

    If the computer is part of a domain, the Domain administrator might have set the theme for you as part of the domain account. You might want to ask the admin to change the theme.

    If you want to try to change the theme locally, please check group policy: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/90570-allow-prevent-users-change-save-theme-windows-10-a.html#:~:text=%20%20%201%20Open%20the%20all%20users%2C,theme%20policy%20to%20edit%20it.%20%28see...%20More%20
