how to patch my system?

rinnagat said...

I installed Bypass and it did not work. Then I uninstalled it and rebooted.
Later, I tried to do it with UltraUXThemePatcher ... It did not work either.

Is there something I should know? These two programs are for patching Windows, right? What should I do?

I have Windows 10 1703 15063.413

the themes doesn't work on windows 10 1703 build 15063.483

I Apply the themes for creators update and I have installed all programs correctly but when apply any theme the theme doesn't change and remains the default theme

do you have any solution for this issue ?

thank you in advance

Omar Khalil said...

@ronny941, I have the same issue, I have also your build, I did possibly everything, but to no avail.

ronny941 said...

@OmarKhalil Ah I'm not the only one then thinks that

think that when the theme is applied in addition to the explorer that remains with the default theme and it doesn't change anymore When it really should change with the theme applied
the program Startisback++ does not detect either the Start button or the layout of the theme as if it did not exist
When in reality there are

I think Microsoft has changed something with this new update to prevent it from applying third-party themes
I tried with all 2 programs That advise theme
but did not change anything

Windows costums I wonder why in the videos of your themes
why you never show the version and build of windows 10
So that users know whether themes are compatible or not ?

thank you in advance

ronny941 said...

however, the versions of the programs are as follows:

UltraUXThemePatcher v3.2.2
Theme Signature Bypass v1.3.2
StartIsBack ++ v2.0.9
OldNewExplorer v1.1.8.2

after applying these programs properly
When I applied any themes for creators update nothing happened
and all remaining default

Hi @ronny941, Good in depth details.
Hopefully we can somehow reach a solution for this problem, so in my scenario:

I have windows 10 Enterprise Creators update (1703) version: 10.0.15063.483 (so we have the same system probably)

First if I install the Uxstyle, it will make the Resources directory totally unstable, like if i tried to copy there, the whole explorer.exe will crash, or if i try to go to Personalize it will crash too, so to resolve this again i uninstalled Uxstyle.

Now Installing this program: (
Now as in the screenshot, no matter what i do, the status will stay not patched (Probably Microsoft has changed some paths).
Is it your same case, do you have always not patched, after you install and reopen the program it should show patched!

Now trying all those changed on Annivarsay Update for the same W10 Enterprise, everything works fluently!.

With your case you have StartIsBack++ not working, for me it works, i can change the Start menu, weird!

Changing from the new personalize window of build 1703 won't work.

Go ahead open the old personalize window, from run, type this command:
explorer shell:::{ED834ED6-4B5A-4bfe-8F11-A626DCB6A921}

and here choose the theme and it will apply.

ronny941 said...

the Startisback worked but Perhaps the did not detect orbs and theme layout because it did not recognize the applied theme
In a few words I have to do the following steps:

Install UltraUxThemePatcher and restart the pc and check if the 3 files have been patched

Apply the reg file to retrieve the classic customization panel as in windows 7 and 8.1

Apply the oldnewexplorer

And install the startisback ++

Then I have to put the themes here:


And then do I have to follow your suggestion right ?

Thank you for your help and for your availability

Yes you are right, but let me rewrite everything as i retested now all from the beginning to be sure, and all worked perfect again.

Install Themes and custom modifications under Windows Creator Version 1703 with 10.15063.483:

1. Download UltraUxThemePatcher 3.2.2, run it as administrator and install.
Note: Don't check the patch status, it will always say not patched!.

2. Install Theme Signature Bypass (Most Important Step), if you don't have it download it from here:!vBEXiR5Z!yQuYTqMrD3cj_gNDP0e8D-FT7pKq4z-c2yPTL3zGBqw

3. Now download your desired Themes and place them in Resources/Themes Folder.

4. Now to apply your theme, don't right click and go to personalize themes, as this will bring the new themes explorer that doesn't work with custom themes, instead press start button and search for:
explorer shell:::{ED834ED6-4B5A-4bfe-8F11-A626DCB6A921}
and press enter, now you have the classic personlize window.

Or if you want to add it to context menu, apply the registry from here:

Note: Don't try other methods on internet, as they will bring back the very old personalize window, just follow tenforums.


Now 100% your theme should be fully working and visible everywhere.

Now go ahead and do your own modification, RocketDock, StartisBack

Note: If StartisBack Doesn't work for you you can use: Classic Shell).
also rainmeter if you like and Core Temp, and if you like nice cursor you can use the: Obsidian Cursor.

Why to do the custom modification after theme loading?
Because simply the theme will reset your all cursor, start menu modification, so apply and finish the theme first then do the mods.

after you are finished with all mods, go to the personalize too, choose your color, Default app mode: Black, Then go to Themes and press save custom, so your all mods under this themes is also saved in case you wanna test other themes after you are finished to not lose your custom mods.

Note: This time use the new personalize not the Classic.

Note 2: In case you got lost or you want other thing, use this document as a roadmap:

And that was all, Good Luck.

@OmarKhalil Thank you very much for all the info and for your help

1703 Build 15063.483
it's not working

ronny941 said...

@Kittisak Bud-udom Try this:
Install Ultrauxthemepatcher 3.2.2
at the end of the installation select "reboot the system later"
Install theme Signature Bypass
at the end of installation remove the check on "log off to complete the install"
Restart the PC
copy the themes to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes

then go to run and type this command:

"Explorer Shell::: {ED834ED6-4B5A-4bfe-8F11-A626DCB6A921}"

You should open the Windows Classic Settings panel and apply them the theme
do not use the new personalize because they will not work
from there once you have done this you can install Oldnewexplorer and the Startisback++

if this don't work I wonder if you can rename the original files with the file Reg 'Take Owership' and then put in the folder system32 the 3 files patched

ronny941 said...

Edit: explorer shell:::{ED834ED6-4B5A-4bfe-8F11-A626DCB6A921}

sorry the correct command is this

ronny941 said...

@Omar Khalil Thank you very much for the info and for all the tips that you give me
everything works properly

by accident you also know how to prevent Windows 10 from updating drivers with Windows Update?

I found this article on the forum that you advised me or tenforums

but I do not know what is the correct procedure
let me know

thank you in advance

Omar Khalil said...

Hi again Ronny, You are Welcome man.

and for the drivers, I don't really like turning of drivers' update, It may be useful for very few occasions, but if you are sure you wanna do that, you can use the reg, at that link you gave me option two works
