    1. This is not accurate; not all CRX themes will apply correctly due to an invalid header. The best way to do this is to install the theme in Chrome, then in Edge Anaheim with Developer Mode enabled, select Pack Extension. Copy the path to the theme’s folder (identified by the extension ID found either under chrome://extensions or in the URL of the Chrome Web Store), making sure you delete any .pem files located in the directory. Once it’s packed, you can then drag the CRX into Edge. It will be correctly packed for Anaheim and work correctly.

      Furthermore, it is possible to uninstall themes without resetting the browser. Just edit the Preferences file and delete the extension ID for the “theme” flag, it will return to the default theme. You can also delete the theme’s new folder, but this is unnecessary.
