Windows 7 features a nice collection of themes with which you can easily change the look and feel of your operating system. You can find them under the Personalize menu, right-clicking anywhere on the desktop. Depending on your area, you’ll get different sets of location specific themes – in my case, I have a Spain set with nice wallpapers displaying the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, the windmills in La Mancha and the coves of Majorca.
But these are not the only regional themes you can use in Windows 7. There are other additional themes you can easily find in the system. Click the Start button and enter
C:\Windows\Globalization\MCT in the Search field.
Windows Explorer will open up a window with more themes. In my case, I get an extra Mexican set, but depending on your region you may get themes from Australia, the UK or Canada, to name a few.
You can choose to use just the new wallpaper…
…or install the complete new theme by double clicking the correspondent file.
The new themes will appear under My Themes, inside the Personalization window. Here’s how my new Mexican theme looks like.
Remember you can download themes for Windows 7 from the Microsoft official website and from several other websites as well, as we already explained a while ago.
