Set visual style desktop theme controls.

This tweak lets you control the access to the desktop theme settings.

Tweak for : Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows Vista
This tweak can control access to the desktop theme settings like Windows styles, buttons, schemes and fonts.

By using this setting you can apply the desired desktop theme to be applied on your system. If the complete path to the ".msstyles" file is given with the tweak setting, Windows will call the said theme, else in case the data value is left blank it will call classic as the default theme.

For this, go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below. You can create a REG_SZ (String Value) value “SetVisualStyle”, if this value does not exist.

Now, right-click and modify the value to the full path of the required .msstyles file name, to specify the default style.

Log off or restart your system for the change to take effect.
