Ranking the Windows 98 Desktop Themes Best to Worst

April 19, 2017 2.8k votes 503 voters 6.6k views17 items

The '90s were a simpler time, as evidenced by the fact that our minds were blown by the Windows 98 desktop themes that came stock with the operating system. Each had their own custom fonts, wallpapers, screensavers, and noises that filled us with joy each time we booted up or shut down our computers. Although they were all wonderful, what was the best Windows 98 desktop theme? Were you partial to the space theme, or did the underwater theme do it for you? We're ranking all the Windows 98 themes not just by the wallpapers they featured, but by the overall vibe of the theme. Vote up your favorites, and downvote the themes you never once chose for your beloved '90s PC.
