Installing windows 3.1 themes

Postby amdcrash » 2019-4-13 @ 11:15

I’ve seen a internet archive collection (located at https://archive.org/details/windowsdesktopthemes ) and it mentioned windows 3.1 compatibility but I do not know how to install the themes, searching only gives results for modern systems.

I think most are for Windows 9x and higher.
You can change the appearance of some W3.1x elements but I don't remember being able to apply a theme.

Alright, I will let the archive know it may be inaccurate

AFAIK, Windows 3.x don't have themes support (at least not out of the box).

So you'll have to install backgrounds, colors and sound manually (unless you find an automatic tool to do so).

They know they're inaccurate; they just don't care; much like their entire "opensource media" category etc... that linked collection seems to be an incomplete regurgitation of Themeworld down to the site's automatic previews.

by the way, DOSBox is not for running Windows 9x

Huh, is that why I haven’t got a reply yet? Their forums are more more dead than a dodo!
