How to install Pocket PC Themes (or skip to free Pocket PC Theme downloads)
After you have downloaded a theme file (.tsk file), unless you have some kind of theme creation software installed on your desktop computer, you won’t be able to view the themes on your desktop PC. You need to copy the theme to your PDA via ActiveSync. Make sure you copy the .tsk file to either the My Documents or Windows folder on your Pocket PC. To do this, make sure your Pocket PC is in the cradle and turned on. Then, double-click on My Computer | Mobile Device. Simply paste the .tsk file there. Or, if you have a MyDevice_MyDocuments folder on your desktop, copy the .tsk file there. Then do a sync.
Once you have the .tsk file copied to your Pocket PC, click on Start | Settings | Today. There, you can select your theme and click OK on the top right.
