The official rollout of the feature will happen with the Creators update scheduled for early 2017. No more disabling Windows Store apps and no more blocking users from installing third-party apps.

Following is a list of themes that have appeared in the Windows Store. The theme installs fine then when you double-click on it.

Microsoft has started rolling out theme support in Windows 10 to the Insiders who are running the latest build. You find the.theme file under theme in the folder that is created when the Windows Store download completes. Meanwhile, Insiders will see a button to download the theme, although there's now nothing in place to actually make the theme active.

With Windows 10 themes one can easily customize the look of a computer, but don't expect them to completely overhaul your desktop.

MSPowerUser notes that the users can try the themes right now by looking for WindowsApps in Program Files. After that, users must make themselves the owner of the folder and its contents before accessing the themes, as it's locked by Windows 10 by default.

For instance, IT shops working with Windows 10 Pro could not use some common Group Policy settings.

Free upgrade lights the way to Windows 10 adoption

it's the Windows 10 update process that stuck out like a red-nosed reindeer this year and is sure to go down in history.
Microsoft teased the very feature at an event in October.

The most recent build of Windows 10 for Insiders is 14986 for PC released just days ago. The build added music playback control to Cortana, improvements to the Windows Game Bar full-screen option, improvements to Windows Ink, and more.

As it's the case with all the other cumulative update, KB3206309 is unlikely to bring anything new besides fixes and improvements for the operating system and the included apps, and the reason the company shipped it to insiders first is that it wants to test the update before releasing it to everyone.
