Can a Theme be controlled or activated through Rainmeter?

Post by Mor3bane »

So the title states the question.

Can a particular win 10 theme be toggled via mouse click - if possible what would that code look like?

Thanks.

Installed Themes are saved in the hidden folder "AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Themes". Activate by executing the desired theme file:

LeftMouseUpAction=["C:\Users\{yourusername}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\aerolite.theme"]

Note: This will apply the theme AND open the Theme Settings dialog.
