Everything I have learned so far about XP and Themes starts by telling me to
click on "Appearance and Themes" in the Control Panel. When I open my
Control Panel, I do not have anything that says "Appearance and Themes."
What's the deal? How can I get it to show up?

It's under 'Display' not Appearances and Themes. The themes is inside the
'display' applet.. You're welcome.

It's available in Control Panel Category view.

I have the same problem. I open Control Panel but don't see Appearance and
Themes. How do I get to Control Panel Category View?

If you are using the Classic Start Menu, or if you are viewing Control Panel
as a folder, then just select "Display".

If you are using the XP-style Start Menu, but you do not see
"Appearance and Themes" in the Control Panel, then click on the link
"Category View".

If you are using the XP-style Start Menu, but you do not see
"Appearance and Themes" in the Control Panel, but you actually are viewing
Control Panel in "Category View" mode, then you may need to edit the registry.
