Microsoft Release a New Free “Premium” Theme for Windows 10

Microsoft keeps rolling out new themes for Windows 10 every once in a while, and most recently, the company published another pack of wallpapers that comes as part of the “Premium” series.

While it’s not yet clear why Microsoft calls these themes “Premium” given they are available free of charge and bring nothing more than wallpapers, they are still a cool download for those looking for high-quality backgrounds for their Windows 10 devices.

This new theme is called Ice Crystals Premium and includes a collection of 15 4K wallpapers, which you can get by simply installing the theme from the Microsoft Store.

As I said, it’s available free of charge, so as long as you’re running a supported version of Windows 10, you can install it without any limitation.

Wallpapers and wallpapers only

“Etch your desktop with frosty swirls and elaborate patterns in these 15 premium 4k images, free for Windows 10 Themes. These images are to be used as desktop wallpaper only,” Microsoft explains in a brief description of the theme.

Once you download Ice Crystals Premium on your Windows 10 device, you can enable it by going to Settings > Personalization > Themes. After activation, you can jump from one wallpaper to another by simply right-clicking the desktop and hitting the options “Next wallpaper” or “Previous wallpaper.”

Windows 10 themes are nothing like their Windows 7 siblings, so you won’t be getting anything else beside wallpapers. Back in the days when Windows XP and Windows 7 were the latest Windows versions, themes also included other customizations, like mouse pointers and sounds. In Windows 10, however, desktop backgrounds are all we get.

You can download Ice Crystals Premiums from the Microsoft Store by clicking this link and then follow the instructions above to enable it.
