After you have found a theme in your WordPress Dashboard that you want to use, installing and using it is easy.

In your WordPress Dashboard, navigate to the Themes section under Appearance.  If you need any assistance getting to the Theme section read our article on finding a theme in the Dashboard.  Once you find the theme that you want to install, click the "Install" button link under the theme and the following box will appear:

installtheme1

Click on the "Install Now" button, and a page will load that confirms that the theme has been installed:

installtheme2

Now if you go back to the "Manage Themes" tab, the theme you just installed will be available to use:

installtheme3

Click on "Activate" under the new theme, and that theme will now be the one used on your website. In the next tutorial we will show you how to find a WordPress Theme Online.
