a little script that will change your Kali theme to look like a default Windows installation
Kali is a Linux distribution created for ethical hacking and penetration testing. It is commonly used by researchers and red teams to perform security tests against organizations.
Kali Linux 2019.4 was released last week and comes with quite a few updates and bug fixes, but one features stands out more than others: Undercover Mode. A feature that allows users to quickly make the Kali desktop look like Windows 10.
The reasoning behind Undercover mode is actually pretty simple and rational: draw less suspicion while working in a public setting.
Say you are working in a public place, hacking away, and you might not want the distinctive Kali dragon for everyone to see and wonder what it is you are doing. So, we made a little script that will change your Kali theme to look like a default Windows installation. That way, you can work a bit more incognito. After you are done and in a more private place, run the script again and you switch back to your Kali theme. Like magic!
