I used windows 10 in virtual box for a few days and i fell in love with its beauty. Is there a ubuntu theme to make it look like windows 10?


Windows 10 GTK Theme, here you go :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/themes
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install windos-10-themes

windows 10 theme

windows 10 theme

See Noobslab & Gnome Look for more information.

  • You people all love Ubuntu here, but should I? I've downloaded Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS from ubuntu.com/download/desktop and guess what? None of your themes are working. What i am doing wrong? I hate these "close" crosses placed in top-left of each window, I want them on top-right! Kidding, I just want windows-like theme. – Dmitry Ilukhin Feb 19 '16 at 10:14

I would say, Numix is a good choice

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:numix/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install numix-gtk-theme

enter image description here


Here are a couple of themes I found,unfortunately I could not find a windows 10 theme but

This one looks like win 8 desktop,flat windows, blue colour etc...

Based on OP comments this theme is not quite the same as a windows 10 one

enter image description here

This one is more windows seven than eight, but the description on the page implies that it install a whole pack of windows based themes and icons, so you might find something there.

You can also look at Gnome look, there are three or four win 8 themes in this search result.

  • windows 10 theme and 8 theme are very much different on close observation – kernel_panic Aug 4 '15 at 19:06
  • I looked really hard, I just don't think it exists, this question has been viewed 1075 times today and no has presented one, so, you never know your look one of those 1075 people might just make one. – Mark Kirby Aug 4 '15 at 19:16
  • This might be the closest you can get at the moment. W10 is still pretty new and it will take some time for someone to make a W10 theme. – Rinzwind Aug 5 '15 at 7:40

You can get a nice Windows 10 theme by using a few individual packages.

GTK3 metacity theme: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Windows+8+theme+By+Kunal?content=165937

Orion GTK3 theme: http://satya164.deviantart.com/art/Orion-GTK3-Theme-281431756

Windows 8 icons: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Windows+8+Icons+Theme?content=167957

And the wallpapers: http://www.windows8core.com/download-the-all-new-desktop-hd-wallpapers-from-windows-10-consumer-preview-build-9901/

You will have difficulty finding Windows 10 themes due to it being such a short time since release, but the above should do quite nicely for the present.
