How do I change Google Chrome Themes? mps11397 2/12/11 10:42 PM
OK, so I just went to the Chrome Store and downloaded a theme. Let's call it "THEME 1." After i downloaded "THEME 1", the theme automatically changed. After that, I decided to download another theme. Let's call it "THEME 2." So once again, the theme changed automatically. But now I want to change BACK to "THEME 1", but I don't know how to. I clicked the wrench icon, clicked options, clicked personal stuff, and then I saw the "theme" section. The only options i get though are "Get Theme" and "Reset to default theme." Isn't there an option where I can choose from previously downloaded themes? Someone PLEASE help me! Thank you =D2011-02-13

Or do i have to re download a theme i already downloaded?

You have to reinstall the previous theme.

How do you reinstall the previous theme when it says it's already installed when you go to it again in the theme store?
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? AriaLunaris 4/2/11 12:35 PM
like DigESource says i have the same issue and cant go to a theme i downloaded a while back cause when i go to the store it says its already installed but i cant load it on chrome...they need to give us an ability to see the ones we download and installed!
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? Dvskiwi 4/12/11 3:36 AM
There is no easy way as far as i am aware but i have managed to find a way to activate a previous theme after downloading them from the Google Web Store.

On a mac, go to your user,  look in ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default/Extensions.

There is no way to know whats what as the folders are all "fhlkahlkhjsdkrytalkfkhsfhf"  but for me i looked at folders by date, and looked for the images under sub folders to find the theme i wanted to revert back to.

Double click the .CRX file, it will open in chrome and appear in the download bar at the bottom, just click continue and it should then change your theme.

Good luck!

I found a work-around, but I've always hated work-arounds because I think it's brushing the responsibility of the functionality of a program or system off onto the user. So, until Google comes up with a fix for their browser/store, the work-around is this:

Simply empty the browser cash and close the browser and reopen it. This flushes the stores installation log or history data from memory so the Theme can be reinstalled. Then you just have to locate the theme again that you liked before and reinstall it.
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? ExileForsaken 7/8/11 5:50 PM
google 'used' to have an option to change the themes . now it appears to be gone from my most freq visited tabs
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? Odie_ 7/24/11 8:39 PM
well, I bookmarked the themes I liked's links. To change the theme, I look for the link in my bookmarks and it actives it.
I think Google should solve this issue, because the right thing is to have an option to browse all the themes I've installed and choose the one I want at the moment with the chance to change it later.

I have a question: how can I delete some of the themes I've installed?
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? pfeds 7/30/11 10:13 AM
Have you seen http://www.themechrome.net which is an online theme creator/editor. I think it's .net, but otherwise try .com. It's really quick and easy with lots to chose from.
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? ShYGuy_ 8/3/11 10:28 AM
There is a way to reset it but there is a catch.You will have to delete your entire download history.After you've done that you can go back to the store and download it again that is the only way.It will no longer show you that it's already installed.You will be free to reset every theme you like. :) hope that helped :)

how to change google browser them?
please hellp me!!
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? mina299 8/12/11 9:04 AM
Since you have to re-install the themes each time, I would just make a bookmark folder for just the themes you like.  Then, when you want to switch themes, go to your bookmarks, select the theme you want, and click "install" when it brings you to the page.  For me, it's a really easy way to access my collection.
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? Mister Han 8/13/11 6:07 PM
You can also re-open your browser. Your desired theme should be downloadable.
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? WhiteLeaker 8/18/11 12:28 AM
I don't know how to reinstall it but I suggest you copy the saved theme to another folder
they'll be at ~\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions\
there is a strange folder name which contain your current theme. copy it and paste somewhere else. then when new theme comes, copy it as well if you wish to keep the new theme
then when you want to change it back follow these steps:
1) enter the real current theme folder which was named strangely.
2) check the name of the folder inside it'll be like #1.0_0# or maybe #2.0_0#
3) enter the copied theme folder. find the past theme which you want to change into
4) enter the theme's folder which you want to change back
5) check the name of the folder* inside
6) if match, then copy the inside folder*, not the outside. and replace the folder with the current theme's folder*
*= folder named like #1.0_0#
Must be done when chrome is closed.
7) Open the chrome and check the result.....

it works for me. Good luck ^^

Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? goutham707 8/27/11 12:15 PM
instead of trying to reopen and again installing the theme from the webstore if you like the theme bookmark it and if you changed it and again want the old one back then as it is on the bookmark just click and continue thats it . you will have all your themes intact .
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? MirkoV 9/1/11 10:32 AM
Ran into the same problem with using an already installed theme that you've changed.
Even if you haven't bookmarked it, you can go into your history and click the the link for the theme the FIRST time you went to it, and the install option is once more available.

Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? macrochip 9/21/11 8:50 AM
The simplest way is to open a New ingocnito window and browse to the theme you want to install.  If you can't browse to theme page under ingocnito, copy and paste it from your normal chrome window.  https://chrome.google.com/webstore?hl=en-US&utm_source=chrome-ntp
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? janfel 10/1/11 8:53 PM
I know! I just 'cleared browsing data' and that's it!  Go back to the web store and you can re-install it.

     Hope it helped! :D
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? himmat93 10/3/11 10:18 PM
Yeah had the same problem but I managed to delete all my themes (which i had but couldn't access). Using Vista:
went to: C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions
some folders are hidden so make sure you click view hidden files/type in the exact address.
once there there were folders containing my extensions and themes. themes folder had a .crx file in there which i opened with chrome and chrome reinstalled it for me.
I closed chrome and deleted that folder so my theme was the default chrome theme.
Then i could download themes i'd already downloaded before without it saying; this theme has been added etc.
It's a hassle but it's a way around it :)
good luck
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? Thomas.Canny 10/11/11 2:31 AM
All you have to do is close the browser, open it again, and navigate to the page where you first installed the theme. The "Add to Chrome" button should be back. just do it again. It worked for me!
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? ttg1993 10/13/11 5:49 PM
All you need to do, is clear your cache using a software like CCleaner(if you know another way, go for it), and then re install the theme like you did in the first place
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? Nycolee. 10/16/11 12:39 AM
Go to Options ; Type in themes and press reset to default theme; Restart your computer and go back to the theme you want and download it
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? Amit Panchal 10/20/11 10:40 AM
I HAVE 100 % FULL PROOF SOLUTION which will work for everyone. Understand 1st thing that there is no way to find out themes which you had installed. But don't disappoint, if you remember the name of that theme you can find out by search. Now if you again install you we get in reply that this is already installed and you will be unable to use that theme. Now solution: 1st step- Go to options rest theme to default 2 nd step: Go to tools - clear browsing data, one small popup will open and there will be options like browsing data , history etc.. now choose all ( you can unchecked boxes like password, form auto fill depends on you, i had chosen all ) now VERY IMP before clear data please select options in drop-down menu (at right side of that popup) in that you will see 5 options past hour, past day... choose " the beginning of time " its very imp. Clear all data. Restart Chrome. Go to get themes. Find out that theme which you want to , Install it(click add to chrome ). You will get desirable result. Enjoy

Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? donaldwesley 2/18/12 8:28 AM
I found that under Chrome/Preferences/Personal Stuff.....  there is a selection for themes.  You may choose to "reset to default theme" and you get the original theme page.  This clears the theme you want to change.  If you want another theme, you must find and install it.  You can always "reset to default theme" and start over again.  I really do not know, but it seems that in addition to the default theme that Chrome only stores ONE additional theme at a time so...if you downloaded one or ten themes, Chrome will only retain the last one that you installed.  Anywho, that is a very simple way to delete and get another theme.
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? Astro3000 2/25/12 9:56 AM
Easiest way,uninstall the desired theme.  Refresh Google Chrome.  Find the theme and reinstall.  Takes 2 seconds if you've bookmarked the theme in the store.  Clearing cache doesn't work.  None of these answers work unless you get rid of the theme and install it again.
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? defyhm 3/7/12 11:21 AM
first install this extension
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/lpleipinonnoibneeejgjnoeekmbopbc?hl=en-US&utm_source=chrome-ntp

then open extension and go to the Extensions tab and uncheck all themes. now check the theme that you want :)

it will work . trust me

Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? HELLKING 5/28/12 9:33 PM

Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? Leon Rainer 9/25/12 3:02 AM
After a little bit of messing around with it all, I finally found out how to mess with it.

1. Go to your wrench in the top let, and go to settings

2. Go to the history tab on the left and clear your history data, and make sure it removes the cache as well.

3. Go to the Chrome Web Store and install the Extensions Manager extension (Thank you defyhm). (This is the link https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/lpleipinonnoibneeejgjnoeekmbopbc?hl=en-US&utm_source=chrome-ntp)

4. Look in the all tab of the extensions for any themes you have installed, and make sure to uninstall all of your themes. Click on the name of the ones you plan on re-installing so that you have a tab to re-install them to.

5. Once you have all the themes uninstalled, go to a theme you clicked on, and it should allow you to install the theme again. Do so if you want to.

6. Once the theme is installed, the switcher extension will say it has been added, enabled, and disabled. This is normal since it will save it under the theme tab on the extension.

7. If you have more than one theme, all of your theme boxes will be disabled. Just check the box of the one you wish to have on. The switcher extension will say it has enabled and disabled the theme. It does this enable/disable to make it convenient to swap themes.


That's it! Hope this helps anyone that ever finds this, since it is an old question.

I have the exact same problem! But I'm really not sure how to return to it, it does say that I've already downloaded the theme and can't go back to theme #1. If there's a way maybe we should try finding a way to look for a way to uninstall one of the themes. If I find out I'll let you know! :)

Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? Simmi-_-8 12/11/12 4:32 PM
I am on a mac, and I have been puzzling over this for a few minutes now. I was searching through when I saw a theme I used a few weeks ago. It was not installed, the button was still blue and it said "Choose Theme." But the ones that I downloaded today still say "Rate this Theme." So I quit Google Chrome (hold down Command-q). I opened it up again and none of the themes were installed except the one I was using currently.

Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? Tim Tewalt 1/4/13 8:11 AM
Okay, this is why Google never makes it to #1 like Apple does.  

Have themes, but no theme switcher.

Confusing interfaces, things removed and added at whim.  

If they made buildings each day the door would be somewhere else or not even there.  

There should not be a thread this long for such a simple function.

Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? spawn (like the comic) 1/5/13 6:28 PM
OK,there is no way to change your Google chrome theme back to a previous one in the settings tab ,so what i did to change my theme back to one of my previous ones is i went to the chrome store and searched it and it said i had it installed. i then went to details and looked for the website the theme is originally from and visited it and downloaded it from there.this works for most themes but if it isn't from a website and it was uploaded from someone who just made one and uploaded it to share then it probably won't work. sorry.

hope this works, good luck.

Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? Tim Tewalt 1/14/13 4:05 PM
You are so very right!  And people think the iPhone etc thing is just marketing.  It is simple, it works, it is intuitive.  

Maybe Google should start a division of just 'really regular smart people' who have lots of common sense.  

Needless to say I don't have a 'theme' for Chrome because I can't change it so why did they pay a really 'smart' programmer to write a feature no one can use?  Not smart at all.

   Alright so this is probably the best thing ever. Download the app 'My Chrome Theme' and you can make your own theme with your own photos.
     
    Seriously, now I'm really happy that I can now make my own theme and you can even re-install them later. Just save the link they give you when you finish and save it into a word document so you can have them for a later time. I really hope this helps everyone who is about to rip out their own hair in frustration!

Dear Google Team:

This is the dumbest thing ever. How has this not been fixed in TWO YEARS?

Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? flnvaz 3/3/13 8:26 PM
Well I was able to easily get my previous them back without having to do any of the below mentioned methods. Simply go to the settings option under the top menu button. Than the first screen you see you will notice the word Appearance in the middle areas directly underneath "On Start up" . There will be a button that says "Reset To Default Theme". Once you click this you can go back to the themes page you had originally been to and click on that same theme again. You may also browse to the directory that the theme downloads to "IE Downloads unless you changed it" and manually open it with Chrome. That works to but it seems easier just to click add them once more from where you originally got it. Hope that helps.

Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? Joel Cheng 5/25/13 9:57 AM
first, you need to get the .crx file of that theme with this extension:

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/give-me-crx/acpimoebmfjpfnbhjgdgiacjfebmmmci

after installing the extension, just visit the theme page again and download the .crx file with the extension.
then just drag the .crx file you've downloaded to your chrome browser, and you'll be able to re-install the theme.
this works for me :3

Just do what some people did down there. Quit Chrome (you don't delete Chrome), open Chrome again, then click on the Chrome store and install whatever theme you want back again. This doesn't do any damage to your computer except it closed out any tabs you had, which you can easily restore!

Hey, do this:
Go to 'Settings' which is in the top right corner.
Below you will see 'Appearance'
You will ha the option 'Reset to default theme'
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? Kevin Ngo 8/9/13 11:28 PM

Ye Just uninstall google it worked for me
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? Geoff Bob 8/20/13 2:47 AM
The fact that Google has gone to the effort to separate apps, extensions, and themes specifically into 3 different categories but make it so only one of them (extensions) has an "enable/disable" switch in the options menu is just mind bogglingl-y stupid.  These productivity bottlenecks within chrome are so bad they have somehow overcome its otherwise priceless innovation.  
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? Tobs2 9/6/13 12:45 AM

1) go to your Chrome Settings at  chrome://settings/
2) under "Appearance", there is a box that reads "Reset to default theme". Click it if you want to change back to your default theme
3) or, click the "Get Themes" to find a new theme

*This solution also works to remove the annoying black bar at the bottom of your screen, if you have the problem where there is a black box at the bottom that contains basically everything you type or shows the link detail when you hover over a link.

Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? Craig232 9/12/13 10:49 AM
I ran into much of the same trouble trying to switch back to a previously-used theme in later versions of Google Chrome.  I'm not usually one to plug an addon unless it really works for me.  The ONLY thing I found that worked is this Chrome Extension:
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/extensions-manager-aka-sw/lpleipinonnoibneeejgjnoeekmbopbc

It showed me the themes I had previously installed and allowed me to switch back to them.  At very least it did a proper job of uninstalling the theme so that I could actually go back to the Chrome Web Store and re-download the one I wanted to use again.

I have to say, after 30 minutes of trying to figure it out the "easy" way, i downloaded this app and 15 seconds later i was happy and not stressing...thank you!
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? Mostafa N 9/16/13 11:13 PM
you can easily install this extension to manage themes/extensions/... :

Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? Dj-Shawn B 9/17/13 12:37 AM
ok guys this is what you do... when you find the theme you want to switch back to in the store click on and it will say added to chrome at the top left corner right... look to the bottom in small font you will see a Http://..... address for the theme copy and paste that into a new tab hit enter and you can reload the theme onto the browser...

Instead of messing around with finding the theme files just get this extension, way easier. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/extensions-manager-aka-sw/lpleipinonnoibneeejgjnoeekmbopbc?hl=en
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? lucky3030 9/20/13 3:11 PM
if you reload the themes page, the previous theme will appear as though you havent downloaded it yet. i had same problem until i reloaded page, :<)
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? Jhem Aquino 9/25/13 12:09 AM
Click the three bars at the upper right corner of your browser. Go to Settings and find the Appearance section. There are two buttons there: Get themes and Reset to Default theme. Click the Reset to default theme button and the chrome will delete all themes previously added. After that, you can search for the theme you wanted and re-install it. :)
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? S C Lin 9/25/13 1:11 AM
First reset to default theme, and then you should be able to re-install previously used themes. No need to clear browser data.

Kinda tricky, I admit. Can't understand why Google made it this way.

Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? Jon Onstott 9/26/13 7:47 AM
I discovered how to do this... go into Settings and click "Reset to default theme".  Now when you go back to https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/themes to get themes, Chrome will say no theme is installed and you can pick whichever one you want.
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? Jeffery Post 9/26/13 8:20 AM

Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? Pabs 10/2/13 5:40 AM
Just click the three lines at the top right hand of the browser, go to settings, then click "reset theme to default". now you can redownload a previous theme. worked for me
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? vern on 10/7/13 2:37 AM

Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? Anuraag Jalali 12/18/13 12:41 PM
Just go to settings, then on the appearance tab, click on restore if you want the default  theme, else select from the "Get Theme" tab to select a theme you downloaded.
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? Wyen Dee 12/25/13 10:24 AM
https://support.google.com/chrome_webstore/answer/1053348 ... try this. it really does work, you can then download the theme you want to change to because every theme you downloaded and installed are wiped out.
Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? Villager Spawn 1/1/14 6:49 AM
What you have to do is go to settings.
Then you look for a heading called "Appearance". You click reset to default theme, then it will turn ugly and grey again. Go to the page of "THEME 1", and it will say "Install" instead of "Rate!" and the green tick will have gone. Download it again, and ta-da.

Thanks, VillagersSpawn.

Re: How do I change Google Chrome Themes? Jordan Hodder 1/4/14 4:54 PM
On mac: Go to chrome>settings and click on "reset to default". That changes the button from "Added to chrome" back to "free (paintbrush symbol)"
