Click on Themes, and then it will open the “Manage Themes” tab. There is a tab on its side namely “Install Themes”, click it. It will give you option to search. You can search theme by color combination, columns (number of columns), width (Fixed or flexible) and even search by features and subject of your blog.

Not only that you can also upload your own created themes or the downloaded premium themes. You can view featured themes (that are currently trending on WordPress) and also see the newest themes on the block by clicking on newest tab. The Recently Updated tab shows the themes that have been updated recently. A nice way to look at the themes which are getting updates regularly.

After you search a theme you are given three options. You can install it right away or you can preview it before installing and you can also view details of the theme.
