The .deskthemepack file extension refers to the new theme configuration files that were released along with the latest version of Microsoft’s Windows Operating system. Beginning with windows 8, users can use this desktop theme packs to personalize their desktop. This file type allows customizing wallpapers, colors, sounds and many other things.
Internally the .deskthemepack file is stored on the architecture of a windows cabinet file or a .CAB file. The .deskthemepack file is not backwards compatible and thus cannot be used with the older versions of Windows or any other operating system. Users can create a custome theme file of their own desktop or choose among 100’s of free templates provided by Microsoft’s Gallery.
In addition to the problem described above, i.e. the lack of the appropriate application to support the .DESKTHEMEPACK file, there may be several reasons that cause problems with opening and operation of the data format:
A quite common problem is the lack of application in the appropriate version. Even if you have an application, with the help of which you should open the .DESKTHEMEPACK file, you may have a problem with it because of its version. Perhaps in previous versions the application has not yet supported the .DESKTHEMEPACK file, so download the update and check again.
If you have already installed the appropriate application, and it is the correct version, the file may not open correctly, because the operating system does not have information that this program supports the file. So you need to "show" which program the computer should use. To do this:
It also happens that the file you want to open is corrupt and therefore there is no such possibility. In this situation, you should find its different version, or ask a person from whom you got, to send it again.
