finding and using "look changer"


Zorin looks like a pretty good distro out of the box, One of it.s most attractive feature (I think) for those transferring from a MSwindos background, might be the ability to easily make it look more familiar to them by changing it to predefined "looks". The program that does that popped up early after install, and I changed it to resemble windows XP, and it does indeed.

But I would like to change it back, and I find nothing about it in the menus, or in the sparse documentation even on the internet. Anybody know how to do that?

Oh, "look changer" is mentioned here and there, but not a word about how to find it in Zorin 6, and nothing
about how to use it.

To be fair, I have not read every word on the internet, and I may have not used the exactly right sear terms although a used various sets and combinations of search terms. Got lots of very un-informative links.

Did you "DuckDuck it? did you find anything?

*sigh*
there should be how-to's on how to search the web.

in under 5 min, i found this:
https://duskfire.wordpress.com/2012/...n-os-6-review/
and it says the look changer is in the menu (usually a button in the bottom left, akin to the windoze "start" button) under system tools.

oh, lookee, there's even a youtube video, taking a slightly different approach:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hVNCsTUCS_8

you did say zorin 6, yes?

If anyone is using Zorin-8 I also found the look changer was not immediately easy to find.

This is where it is on mine.........

"Z" -> "System Tools" -> "Look Changer"

Better give myself a pat on the back since I've only been using zorin for a couple hours and already contributing. :-)
