Default Can't get themes to work

I apologize for my ignorance before posting this question, but what is the "Reaper Window?" I am trying to apply some different themes and the sticky above tells me to grab the zip file (after opening Reaper) and place it in the Reaper window. Nothing is working. Thanks in advance.

I think it means that you can drag and drop theme over reaper program. Same way you would drag and drop it to different folder for example.

The 'Reaper window' is the Reaper application itself. So it means doing a drag & drop of the .ReaperThemeZip Theme file from Windows File Explorer or macOS Finder onto the Reaper application (window).
As shown here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vYLxoVZhO5g


What Themes are you trying to install in this case (can you maybe post a link)?
Because in some cases Theme packages might come in a .zip or .rar archive (including additional things besides the .ReaperThemeZip Theme file like icons, menu or toolbar settings, etc.) which needs to be unzipped first.

Thanks Solger. Trying to download this theme https://stash.reaper.fm/theme/2317/AbbeyRoad2.zip.

I have dragged the zip file into the Reaper Icon and into Reaper itself while open. Get nothing.

The zip you want is inside of another zip in this case because it's bundled with some other optional stuff.
