Remap theme folder location

i would like to use custom themes on a school computer that does not have admin, so i thought i could just use batch to make windows think the folder is in another location. i coded this:

@echo off
echo remapping the path "C:\Windows\Resources\Themes" to:"C:\Users\Chaz\Desktop\test"
set C:\Windows\Resources\Themes=C:\Users\Chaz\Desktop\test

echo press any key when you want to set the path back to normal and exit.
set C:\Windows\Resources\Themes=C:\Windows\Resources\Themes

but it does not work and any theme that i put in that test folder does not show up. i also shut down explorer.exe and used explorer++ to launch the batch file to try to make sure the changes were being applied, but it still didnt work. any help and advice is more than appreciated. i guess what im trying to do is not as simple as i thought.

  1. I dont know much about Batch langauge but use Notepad++ to check for errors. Im going to try the bat and tell you whats the problem.

    Good Luck!
  2. I'm pretty sure that it isn't because of errors because it seems to work , but when I go to change themes, it doesn't show the themes I put in the folder that I have it remapped to. Thank you for your reply and time. It is very appreciated.
