How to Change Theme in Shopify?

Upload a theme from your computer

If you have a theme on your computer that you want to install, you can upload it to your Themes page:

  1. Make sure your theme files are compressed into a single .zip file.

  2. From your Shopify admin, click Online Store, and then click Themes (or press G W T).

  3. Click Upload a theme in the top right-hand corner.

    Shopify Theme Settings

  4. From the Upload A Theme dialog, click Choose File to select the .zip file that you want to upload.

  5. Click Upload.

    Upload Theme

The uploaded theme appears in the Unpublished themes section of your Themes page. You can install a maximum of 20 themes in your store. To publish the theme on your storefront immediately, click Publish theme. Your current published theme will become unpublished.

View your installed themes

To see all the themes you have currently installed:

  1. From your Shopify admin, click Online Store, and then click Themes (or press G W T).

    Below your published theme you will find any other installed themes that are unpublished (you can have up to 19 unpublished themes).

    Upload Theme

The featured theme shown at the top of your Themes page is your published theme. This means it's the theme that Shopify is currently using to display the pages of your website.

If you have other themes installed, they will be shown below as Unpublished themes.

You can have a total of 20 themes installed at any time. That's one published theme and up to 19 unpublished themes.
