This is the second time in a month or so I've had this happen, and out of nowhere it pops up.

save a theme error pop up

Googling gets me no proper answer answer. On Microsoft Answers, I've found that many users have had this issue, but not sure if they were all on Windows 10.

I did the sfc/scannow as asked in it. The result is "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations." I did the DISM tests and still found no errors.

I could try disabling syncing of windows theme, as suggested by a user, and it has helped many users apparently, but I want my sync to work, not disable it. Also, I do not know for sure if at all that is the actual issue.

I have windows 10 64 bit version 1709 (16299.192) running on a samsung laptop np550p5c with so far no new updates showing up in the settings page.

  • What happens when you click 'Yes'? – Ultrasonic54321 Mar 3 at 16:46
  • @Ultrasonic54321 If I recall correctly, nothing happens on clicking anything. – NVZ Mar 3 at 16:48
  • So when this happens, the theme is already saved? – Ultrasonic54321 Mar 3 at 16:50
  • @Ultrasonic54321 I do not know what triggers the error message. I do not know about the workings of the theme settings. – NVZ Mar 3 at 16:52

    Same issue on Windows 10 v.1803 – divenex May 18 at 12:47

I have an idea of what that error could display.

Did you move one of the background files (I.e. Background.jpg) to another folder recently? Perhaps setting up a new theme with the same settings might help
