Hello,

When I had Windows 7 there were a set of Themes installed, that made my desktop another color and all the windows to match, etc... One was called "High Contrast White" and another was called "Lilac" and "Wheat" and "High Contrast Black" etc... I do not want any new themes I just want the old normal ones back. Can anybody direct me on how I might get those themes back since Ive got Windows 8 now? I guess the themes are not here anymore because of that? I did a complete system restore and changed to Windows 8 and now my themes are gone except for the Windows XP and Windows Classic. Im talking about when you right click on the screen of your computer then click Properties then Themes.

Just realised you must have downloaded the transformation pack, that is not Windows 8.
