    Is the theme being applied to new users?

    The theme is still not open in new user accounts, and then I have a question how do I get the layout of the start menu of Windows 8 exactly the same in new accounts.

    Hopefully you can help me.

    The theme would only be applied on new accounts created after the policy has been set. It will not be applied to any accounts already created before the policy was set.

    Is this the issue?

    If not, please go ahead and post screenshots showing your registry settings for this to see if anything may stand out as an issue.

    When you double click on the .theme file, does it successfully change your theme to it?

    Since there may be some sort of permissions issue causing the black screen, see if this may work below instead.

    Brink is an administrator who may or may not be on today, for it is a national holiday here in the U.S. I don't know enough about this to be of help, but I can answer that there is no help here via remote desktop.

    Brink or someone else may come to help. Please be patient.

    I've been waiting on you to answer the question below that I posted twice now to see if the .theme file itself works or not to see if that may be why it's not working for new users.

    "When you double click on the .theme file, does it successfully change your theme to it?"

    Would the alternative option I posted above to specifying a desktop background for all users work?
