Hi all my dear brothers and sisters,
- This is my first tutorial concerning the topic "How to customize your own windows: themes, icons packs, wallpapers, desktop arrangements, programs"
- The things I am going to show are all applied on my customized Windows 10.
- There are things that are not included in this tutorial: windows 10 installation process, modifications of dlls and capture of the image process (although I will suggest some applications to do such things)

- First,
We need to install windows 10 in a virtual machine (of your choice. For me I use Oracle Virtualbox) until we reach that point in installation (OOBE) and we press (LEFT CONTROL + SHIFT + F3):

Now we are entering a mode called (Audit mode). We wait till the desktop appear.

- Second (Visual customizations: themes, icons and wallpapers):
There are three main programs you need to install before you can customize visual appearance (search for them in our forum)
(1) StartIsBack.AIO.1.0.1

(2) OldNewExplorer (You could uncheck the first two in the first section)

(3) UltraUXThemePatcher

Then you reboot your system in the virtual machine.

Now, you could put the themes you want in the following path:

C:\Windows\Resources\Themes


You can use the icon pack you want (You could use "7tsp explorer.exe fix by Moonnique® " and the supported icon packs)

You can configure StartisBack

Now you can put the wallpapers you want in the following path and choose what you need to be the default desktop wallpaper or you can make them appear in a Slideshow and adjust the timer:

C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper


-Third install all the application you want (office, adobe reader, any runtimes, .........)

After you do all the things you would like to customize even setting your browser homepage, you can cleanup drive c:\ by right click on it and click on properties

- Now make a txt file and name it copyprofile for example.
- Then change txt to xml. The file will seem like that (copyprofile.xml).
You can find it here:
- Copy

XML:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend">
<settings pass="specialize">
<component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
<CopyProfile>true</CopyProfile>
</component>
</settings>
<cpi:offlineImage cpi:source="wim:D:/sources/install.wim#Windows 10 Pro" xmlns:cpi="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:cpi" />
</unattend>

- Paste it in copyprofile.xml
- Put the copyprofile.xml in the root of any drive except for the c:\ drive.
- Run (cmd) as an administrator and use the following command:

C:\Windows\System32\Sysprep\Sysprep /generalize /oobe /shutdown /unattend:x:\CopyProfile.xml
x= the drive where you put the file


- Don't make anything during (sysprep) is running even moving the mouse.
- After the Virtual machine is off, you can mount the virtual drive and then capture your image with all the customizations you have done.

Thanks so much and pardon my mistakes.

Enjoy life in the right way as no one lives forever.

Nice, this'll come in handy... Thanks for the write up.

Regarding UltraUXThemePatcher, have you checked out SecureUxTheme? Main difference is that it doesn't modify any system files, so windows update, sfc, etc. don't make you need to reapply it. Claims to be future-proof, too. Time will tell but I can confirm that when I upgraded to 2004 there was no breakaga. It's on github, easy to find.

I have tested UltraUXThemePatcher and there are no crashes at least for me. U can use any app that does the same function. i will try urs and tell u.

if inside the code there is something like ": o" or ": D" or " : )" it will transform into an emoji face.
So that this does not happen, paste the code inside the CODE tags.
Then inside you have to choose HTML, CSS, XML etc, or simple general code. :giggle:

@Mr Grimbahir Why does this all have to be done in VM? It's not necessary. The steps you provided are good though. :) I guess better safe then sorry.
If you don't use VM, you will have to do all the steps every time you install a windows. But if you use VM, you make a customized OS that is installed with all the things you want. For example, i integrate Office, PS and filmora. When i install the windows, they are there and i dont have to install them.

I don't use a virtual machine, I do the customization on a partition of the main machine (PC).

Capturing the .wim image is much faster.
