How to Install Your Chrome Theme

Update: Installer for Windows Available
If you’re on a Windows PC, you’ll download a .EXE file. Save that file to your computer and double click to start the installation of your theme.
Mac & Linux Users:
Providing an installer actually increases the amount of work you. Because of that, please follow the instructions we originally posted below:
The manual steps you need to take are the type of experience we strive to provide our users. Until Google allows for a different option, the video is a good summary but text instructions also follow.

In Chrome, you can follow these steps to add the extension:
- Download the extension file from the website and save it to your computer (I’d recommend the desktop so it’s easy to find and remove when you’re done installing).
- Click the wrench icon on the browser toolbar.
- Select Tools > Extensions.
- Locate the extension file on your computer and drag the file onto the Extensions page.
- Review the list of permissions in the dialog that appears. If you would like to proceed, click Install.
