Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Depends a bit on which edition of Linux Mint you downloaded. Did you download the Cinnamon, MATE, Xfce or KDE edition?

But i think im on the verge of figuring it out, I found the "theme manager" but its called appearance preferences but when i isntalled the theme and changed it, it made verything blocky like an old windows computer. It also says at the bottom, "This theme will not look as intended because the required GTK+ theme 'Ambiance" is not installed" so now im trying to figure out how to install Ambiance....
