According to Wikipedia, a theme is a preset package containing graphical appearance details. A theme usually comprises a set of shapes and colors for the graphical control elements, the window decoration, and the window. Windows comes with some built-in themes, and you can create your own. You can export and share your custom themes; you cannot share the built-in themes.
The way to share your themes is to export all their parts into a file, make the file available to the person you want to share it with, and they can then import the file to make use of your theme. The steps to do this are as follows.
Once your colleague has the file for the theme, they simply double-click the file to import it into their system. (They must be running a Windows 10 system, as well.) For them to apply this theme, they go to the Themes tab and select it.
