    The best way I found for customizing Windows 10 themes was Vista Style Builder (assuming of course that you are using a theme patcher). You can purchase it here [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    However it is a "paid for app", and since theme editing is quite complicated for a beginner, you might perhaps be better off with MsstyleEditor ([Only registered and activated users can see links. ]) which is open source and free. It's a bit of a trial to ut through the slightly offputting labelling, so just ask if you want some help with that.

    However, if you do decide to use VSB, may I suggest looking over this website? [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    It's a website created by the wonderful Chloe Chantelle, however the github page expired and I pulled it over to my domain for personal use. I hope it can help you.

    thumbs up

    I think, IMO, the MsstyleEditor is even more up-to-date (last release 1.5.0.0 Feb 23rd 2021), official Windows Style Builder only supports up to Win7, further extended to Win10 based on community efforts (Mr.GRIM, etc...)

    But problem: MsstyleEditor is so unpopular and there's no tutorial (no guide about which class link to which image element in UI theme). So it's difficult to get into and quickly follow some instruction (because there's none). Advantage: seems works on every windows edition 7 to 10 (haven't test that but the tool claimed so). @Bluejive: Do you have any locations guide on this tool? I tried this tool a few times but haven't really made out anything because different in locations, I quickly fall back to WSB for convenience.

    On otherhand, WSB is very popular amongst theme editors, there're a lot of tutorials and resource, example. Product proven. But it's paid software and not officially supported. There're different setup to deal with different tasks. Like one folder of WSB to work with Win7 (in win7 host OS), another folder with different config to work with win10 (import old themes from 7-8-10TH2), another folder to work with win 10 1903 (19H1) and newer (I don't know how others manage this but it's kinda messy to have different folders for different config of WSB, especially for beginners).

    Many locations in win7 still there in Win10, so the guide by Dave Senior still works great to some extent.
