3. Then click the little triangle in the corner of the themes to display more. (See arrow in snip above)

4. Click “Save Current Theme”

5. Choose a location and click save and now you’ve got a .THMX file!

Great, now you’re thinking… this has got to either be CSS or XML and I can easily edit this. Sorry I tried to open it in Notepad and got gibberish with a few file references at the bottom.

Now you can apply this on the SharePoint 2010 side:

  • Just go into Site Actions, click Site Settings
  • In the Look and Feel section, click Site theme
  • In the Select a Theme section select the theme you uploaded.


How are 2010 Themes way better?

  1. I just told you about the ability to create them in PowerPoint isn’t that cool enough
  2. Extensible, export and import
  3. Easily modify existing 2010 themes
  4. Applies to both System (Layouts) and Application pages for better consistency across more of your pages including your web part pages and yes you can add custom CSS as well.
  5. Designed for end users to be able to easily create and modify right through the browser
