Hello Char,

Thanks for the question. You change the theme by simply clicking back on STEP 2 and it should allow you to choose a different template. Choose the design, then save the changes and you should be able to see the theme in action.

I hope this helps to provide an answer. If you have other questions or have any further comments, please let us know.

Arnel C.
