Copy aero.theme to a folder where it can be edited

I'm using the aero.theme file as the base file to edit, but you cannot edit it in its current folder because it is part of the Windows system and is write-protected. Therefore, I created a folder in the Documents folder called Themes and saved a copy of the aero.theme file there.
