Chickens, Insects and Butterflies Make Up 3 More Fantastic Windows 7 Themeshttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2012/02/11/chickens-insects-butterflies-3-fantastic-windows-7-themes/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2012/02/11/chickens-insects-butterflies-3-fantastic-windows-7-themes/#comments Sat, 11 Feb 2012 16:01:49 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=22327 I know that you all love to personalise your Windows 7 Desktops with the latest themes and wallpapers, so today I’ve got a selection of 3 more brilliant themes for you. They include Chickens that Can’t Fly, Butterflies that can fly and some Dynamic Insects.

Chickens Can’t Fly

A rather interesting title for a Windows 7 Theme I think you’ll agree, and that’s what caught my attention in the first place. This theme is from the Xbox Live Game “Chickens Can’t Fly”. So if you’re a fan of that game I’m sure you’ll love this rather comic theme of Chickens as they attempt to fly.

Butterflies Theme

This next theme emphasises the natural beauty of butterflies. It features several close up wallpapers of elusive butterflies in their natural habitat.

Dynamic Insect Theme

And the last theme that I have for you today is another dynamic one. For those of you who don’t know, dynamic themes are constantly updated with new wallpapers via a RSS feed so you’ll never get bored of the same old wallpapers.

This theme features close ups of dragonflies, butterflies, lady bugs and more insects, all in their natural environment.

New Roses Themes for Windows 7http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2012/02/05/roses-themes-windows-7/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2012/02/05/roses-themes-windows-7/#comments Sun, 05 Feb 2012 17:05:43 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=22079 Valentines day is fast approaching, so here are some new Windows 7 themes that you can download an use on your desktop. These are Roses, and they are some of the most wonderful looking pictures ever.

Queen of the Flowers

Known as “the queen of flowers,” roses have been valued for thousands of years for their beauty and fragrance. Their connection to romance also spans the generations, popping up in songs, poems, and in lovers’ bouquets since at least the Middle Ages.



rose is a woody perennial of the genus Rosa, and there are over 100 species. They form a group of erect shrubs, and climbing or trailing plants, with stems that are often armed with sharp prickles. Flowers are large and showy, in colors ranging from white through yellows and reds. Most species are native to Asia, with smaller numbers native to Europe, North America, and northwest Africa. The name rose comes from French, itself from Latin rosa.

Earliest roses are known to have flourished 35 million-years ago  and petrified rose wreaths have been unearthed from ancient Egyptian tombs.

Roses are best known as ornamental plants grown for their flowers in the garden and sometimes indoors. They are also used for commercial perfumes and commercial cut flower crops. Some also work as landscape plants. They also have minor medicinal uses.


Roses often appear in art and appear in various artistic disciplines. They appear in portraits, illustrations, on stamps, as ornaments or as architectural elements. One artist Pierre-Joseph Redouté is known for his detailed watercolors of flowers, particularly roses.

Legends and mythology

In Greek mythology, Aphrodite, Goddess of Love, created the rose from her tears and the blood of her lover Adonis. The Romans, turning Aphrodite into their goddess Venus, also adopted the rose: it became the symbol of love and beauty. Cupid, offering a rose when trying to bribe the God of Silence to hush Venus’s amorous escapades, made the flower into a symbol for secrecy.

Year of the Dragon – New Windows 7 Themeshttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2012/01/15/year-dragon-windows-7-themes/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2012/01/15/year-dragon-windows-7-themes/#comments Sun, 15 Jan 2012 15:18:47 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=21816 Microsoft has released a new set of Windows 7 Themes called Year of the Dragon.

Celebrate the Year of the Dragon with a free Windows 7 theme featuring magnificent examples—both ancient and new—of the imperial dragon rendered in stone, wood, and bronze.

It’s interesting that most of the world marks the turn of the year around this time. January 23rd brings the start of the Year of the Dragon, for which we’ve assembled a collection of magnificent ancient and modern renderings in stone, wood, and bronze.

The Year of the Dragon

The Dragon is one of the 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac related to the Chinese calendar, and the only animal that is legendary. The Year of the Dragon is associated with the earthly branch symbol.

Water and the elemental signs 

Water in the Chinese zodiac is the low point of the matter, or the matter’s dying or hiding stage. Water is the fifth stage of Wu Xing. The other stages are Wood, Fire, Earth, and Metal.

Water is the most yin, i.e., polar opposite (yin and yang), in the character of the Five elements. It is associated with the Winter, the North, the planet Mercury, the color black, cold weather, night, and the Black Tortoise (Xuan Wu) in Four Symbols.


The Elemental signs of the Dragon

  • 16 February 1904 – 3 February 1905: Wood Dragon
  • 3 February 1916 – 22 January 1917: Fire Dragon
  • 23 January 1928 – 9 February 1929: Earth Dragon
  • 8 February 1940 – 26 January 1941: Metal Dragon
  • 27 January 1952 – 13 February 1953: Water Dragon
  • 13 February 1964 – 1 February 1965: Wood Dragon
  • 31 January 1976 – 17 February 1977: Fire Dragon
  • 17 February 1988 – 5 February 1989: Earth Dragon
  • 5 February 2000 – 23 January 2001: Metal Dragon
  • 23 January 2012 – 9 February 2013: Water Dragon
  • 10 February 2024 – 28 January 2025: Wood Dragon

The Cycle of Wu Xing

There are two cycles in the Wu Xing, the regenerative and the conquest. In the regenerative cycle, metal engenders Water, as metal traps falling water from a source. The demonstration of Waters power comes as it creates Wood as rain or dew makes plant life flourish.

In the conquest cycle, Water overcomes Fire, since nothing will put out a fire as quickly as water. But Earth overcomes water as earth-built canals direct the flow, as well as soil absorbing water.


Note: Windows 7 themes can only be used in Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate editions.

For those of you who don’t know what a dynamic theme is, it’s basically a theme which is constantly getting new wallpapers from an RSS feed. I really like these themes since they’re constantly changing and have stunning wallpapers. They really bring your desktop to life and keep it interesting.

So I decided to go looking for a few more of these dynamic themes to share with you and I found these two. The first one is a Floral Dynamic Theme, and the second one is a Dynamic Theme of different terrains and landscapes.

I think we can all agree that these are gorgeous themes and will look great on your Windows 7 machine. Below is a brief description of each theme as well as their download links

For those of you who don’t know, the Dynamic themes are themes that constantly change. Well their wallpapers do at least. New wallpapers are pulled in all the time from an RSS feed so your theme is constantly looking new and fresh. Bing is also well known for having stunning pictures and that’s one of the reasons why this theme is so great.

Now Bing have got a new Dynamic theme, this one is of various aerial shots of the European Landscape from Bing Maps and there’s also one for the United States.

As I mentioned earlier, these themes are constantly updating and changing the wallpapers which are pulled in via RSS feeds.

You can find both the themes below along with their respective Download Links

Bing Aerial Europe

Windows 7 Ice & Globe Themeshttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/12/16/windows-7-ice-globe-themes/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/12/16/windows-7-ice-globe-themes/#comments Fri, 16 Dec 2011 19:49:11 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=21506 It’s this time of year when the weather for most of us (in the northern hemisphere that is) is turning increasingly cold and biting day by day, but then again that goes along with the whole Christmas spirit. This turn in the weather has also been the source of inspiration for some of these new themes from Microsoft this week.

The themes are based around the concepts of cold, round, and oddly the number 4?

In the cold category, it’s all about ice, so we’ve got “Ice Water” and “Party Ice”. Of course they both revolve around ice.

Ice Water

The second theme, Party Ice is a bit more colourful. I can’t put it any better than the description that Microsoft provides

Colored lights shining and reflecting through the irregular facets of transparent ice cubes make these photographs look almost like abstract jewels.

The next set of themes then fall into the round category. We’ve got some Bubbles and Marbles for you this time. Bubbles of course being circular spheres of air, and marbles representing circular spheres of, well, marble!

 They are all quite simple themes, but all appealing in their own right. I think the first 2 themes are perfect for this time of year, or you could check out the selection of Christmas themes that I put together recently as well.

ASUS & Intel Theme for Windows 7http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/11/13/asus-intel-theme-windows-7/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/11/13/asus-intel-theme-windows-7/#comments Sun, 13 Nov 2011 22:43:49 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=21159 As part of the recent “In Search of Incredible” campaign that was recently run by Intel and ASUS, they’ve decided to release this theme to celebrate it. The competition itself is now closed but what they were looking for was an incredible story. The prize then offered users who submitted these stories a chance to get it turned into a short film, where they would have their own professional film crew and they’d also get their own ASUS N-Series laptop. The film will then be screened at one of the world’s leading film festivals in Park City, Utah.

While the competition may now be closed for new entries, they want you to help choose the winners so you can head over there and vote for your favourite.

So to celebrate the competition, Intel and ASUS themed up with their creative partner – photographer Don McCullin who provided the images for this theme. The theme is made up of some of his best black and white photographs and includes images of vintage musical equipment, a dusty old record shop, and the backlit grooves of a record spinning on a turntable.

You can have a look at the 7 wallpapers in the gallery below

You can download the theme from the link below, and if you just want the wallpapers, follow this guide.

iSteve Theme For Windows 7http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/10/10/isteve-theme-windows-7/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/10/10/isteve-theme-windows-7/#comments Mon, 10 Oct 2011 19:28:37 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=20837 I’m sure everyone in the world knows by now that Steve Jobs sadly passed away last week. The CEO and Co-Founder of Apple was a truly inspirational individual who had an unnatural ability to make people want products that they probably didn’t really need. Steve changed the way we all use technology and he will be greatly missed by not only us in the tech world, but everyone.

So in memory of the great man, I’ve got this Steve Jobs theme for Windows 7. The iSteve Theme is fairly simple, just a few black and white images of Steve Jobs with some of his most inspirational quotes

This theme release brought back some happy memories for me, as the last computer game that I played seriously was Age of Empires II, and I spent far too many hours playing online against other players around the globe on the Microsoft Zone service.

Some of my old zone names were Knight38_Binson, Vulture_Foster, Digital_Toomuch and SIN_XenJi  - anybody remember me?

Windows 7 Wimbledon Themehttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/06/26/windows-7-wimbledon-theme/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/06/26/windows-7-wimbledon-theme/#comments Sun, 26 Jun 2011 13:16:51 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=19145 We’re getting to the exciting part of the Wimbledon tennis championships and, as if by way of a miracle, the sun’s out.  To mark this unusual occurrence there’s a new Wimbledon theme has been released by Ali Raza of MicrosoftFeed.

It’s the 125th time the famous lawn tennis championships have been held with the tournaments beginning back in 1877.  By many people around the world Wimbledon is considered the most prestigious of all tennis championships (and we British would never disagree with them).

The tournament is one of four international grand-slam events.  The others being the Australian Open, the French Open and the US Open.  It also has some extremely strict rules which include the famous “players must always wear white”, which many believe adds a certain class to the two week event.

The tournament runs until July 3rd in London (UK) and is a great event for drama, royal patronage, grunting and, of course rain and strawberries.

The theme contains a selection of action shots from the tournament over the years including the obligatory “crowd sitting in rain”.  There are no strawberries and cream however, but this is an excellent opportunity to add your own  ;)

Windows 8 Theme For Windows 7http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/06/26/windows-8-theme-windows-7-2-2/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/06/26/windows-8-theme-windows-7-2-2/#comments Sun, 26 Jun 2011 11:37:09 +0000 http://www.windows8news.com/?p=804 The core issue that is keeping the majority of Windows users away from changing their theme is the complexity of the procedure. While it takes just a click to install basic new themes under Windows 7 that change the wallpaper, color scheme and maybe some sounds, it is not as easy to switch to a full theme.

Why? Because Microsoft has built-in protections into the operating system to prevent tampering with core operating system interfaces. Before it is even possible to start changing themes under Windows it is necessary to patch those system files.

This meant running one or multiple programs back in the days. To make matters worse, some programs were not compatible with 32-bit versions and some offered different program versions for that. Lots of confusion in this regard.

The Windows 8 Skin Pack 1.0 For 7 is different. It comes with an installer that takes care of everything, if you want. It patches the uxtheme.dll automatically before installing all necessary theme files to turn Windows 7 into Windows 8.

Take a look at a screenshot of a Windows 7 Professional system after installing the Windows 8 theme on the system.


The theme installs the new Windows 8 login screen, wallpapers, taskbar modifications and a lot more.

Installation of the theme is a breeze. I recommend you create a system restore point before you start the installation though. This is a disaster recovery option then, to turn back to the old system if the installation goes wrong.

The easiest way to do that is to click on the start button and enter restore point in the search box there. Select Create a restore point from the search results and follow the instructions on screen.

You can download the theme installer directly from Windows 8 News. Everything is packed into a zip file. Just extract the contents and run the installer afterwards. You can unselect items if you like, but it is not recommended due to compatibility reasons.

[Download not found]

You are asked to restart the PC afterwards, and will be greeted with the new Windows 8 log on screen after you have done so.

The Windows 8 theme comes with a full Aero theme and an Aero lite theme, which is a basic theme. It is possible to switch between both easily with a right-click on the desktop and the selection of Personalize.

What we really like about the theme is the super easy way to install it. Please note that you need to uninstall the theme to undo all the changes made to the operating system. It is not enough to switch to another theme, as some modifications have been hard coded into the system files.

All system files are restored during uninstallation, and now traces of the theme are left on the system.

Paramount Pictures Dynamic Movie Themehttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/06/22/paramount-pictures-dynamic-movie-theme/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/06/22/paramount-pictures-dynamic-movie-theme/#comments Wed, 22 Jun 2011 11:10:21 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=19067 Personally I love using these dynamic themes for Windows 7. For those of you who don’t know what they are – essentially the wallpapers are pulled in off of an RSS feed all the time. That means that your wallpapers are constantly being updated without you having to do it. All the times new ones are being released and you will rarely see the same wallpaper appear for more than a week for two.

The latest dynamic theme that I’ve come across is Paramount Pictures Movies Dynamic Theme from Microsoft. You will now automatically receive new wallpapers from the latest Paramount Pictures movies. Brilliant wallpapers from movies like Thor, True Grit, Kung Fu Panda 2, Super 8, and Transformers 3 will all update automtically through an RSS feed.

These dynamic themes for Windows 7 really spice things up and are a great way to personalise your desktop. I actually use a dynamic theme myself – Bing Dynamic – which pulls all the pictures from Bings search engine homepage and adds them to my theme.

You can download the Paramount Dynamic theme below

Turn Windows 7 Metro With This Themehttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/05/31/turn-windows-7-metro-theme/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/05/31/turn-windows-7-metro-theme/#comments Tue, 31 May 2011 20:22:19 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=11619 As Microsoft turns to the Metro paradigm for nearly all of their products, services and even websites, the flagship of Microsoft (Windows 7) remains in the Aero interface that was first made famous in Longhorn, then Windows Vista.

Luckily, for those users who wish a little bit of metro on their copy of Windows 7, it can be done by using the themes feature in Windows 7. I was curious about what programs out there that are making the switch, along with Microsoft, to the Metro user interface and I ran across this theme on TechSplurge.com which completely takes over your Windows desktop for a metro-inspired alternative. Here’s how:

  • Download the white or black version of the Metro theme [Download not found]
  • Follow the theme creators directions in the HowTo.txt accompanying the download:
  1. In the Extras folder there is another folder with a name “Uxtheme Patch”
  2. Enter the folder then right click and run as Administrator the “UniversalThemePatcher-x64″ or “UniversalThemePatcher-x86″
  3. Click on all 3 buttons with the name Patch from the Top to Bottom
  4. Restart your computer
  5. Go to the Theme folder and then
  6. Copy the 2 files in there and paste them to C:/Windows/Resources/Themes
  7. Double Click to the “Zune QuickPlay.theme” file and you’re now have the Sonye Theme of your computer.

Being a big fan of the Metro design language, I went through the process and applied the theme with a custom wallpaper. Here is what my desktop looks like with the theme applied:

In most cases, users either hate or love the Metro UI. There doesn’t seem to be many in-between. If you are one of the ones that can’t get enough Metro, then you can turn your desktop into a Metro desktop by using this theme.

Windows 7 HDR Photograph Themes from the Artist PinGalleryhttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/05/15/architectural-photographs-artist-pingallery/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/05/15/architectural-photographs-artist-pingallery/#comments Sun, 15 May 2011 18:57:10 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=11454 Windows 7 Themes come in a variety of formats, here are photographs from PinGallery who specializes in HDR

HDR stands for High Dynamic Range. HDR-digital photos are characterized by high richness, even in bright areas or deep shadows. This is possible when conventional bracketing are converted by using special software in HDR images.



In image processing, computer graphics, and photography, high dynamic range imaging (HDRI or just HDR) is a set of techniques that allow a greater dynamic range of luminances between the lightest and darkest areas of an image than standard digital imaging techniques or photographic methods.

To create an HDR image, multiple shots are needed. Due to the overexposure and underexposure of individual agencies and the drawings in the bright and dark areas are recorded. The calculated HDR image can not be displayed properly because it is contrary to standard images (LDR – Low Dynamic Range) instead of the color information stored with 32 bit resolution with 8 bit and the contrast is just too great. The final picture is obtained only with the Tone Mapping. It allows numerous settings and parameters, with special lighting – form and color effects.

New Windows 8 Theme For Windows 7http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/05/05/windows-8-theme-windows-7/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/05/05/windows-8-theme-windows-7/#comments Thu, 05 May 2011 22:07:41 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=11384 I’m sure many of you have been following the events revolving around Windows 8 over on our sister blog windows8news. Those of you who have will know by now that we have got some primitive looks at the new Windows 8 user interface. Of course there is still a long way to go with it, but that hasn’t stopped several graphic designers from coming up with new Windows 8 themes for Windows 7.

The Windows 8 user interface that we’ve seen to date already looks much cleaner and more polished than Windows 7. Even though it’s far from finished Deviantart has got one of the first theme’s to transform your Windows 7 desktop into Windows 8.

Unfortunately because it is not an official Microsoft approved theme it’s not an easy one click install job which is commonplace with most themes.

[Download not found]

It doesn’t affect how Windows operates in anyway so don’t worry about that. It just makes it look a little bit more polished and refined, as well as adding the user icon to the bottom right.

  • It works on both 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Windows 7 (according to the developer 32-bit is better)
  • It is necessary to patch a couple of system files before you install that (more on that here)
  • It should work with all languages
  • Be sure to make a backup of your system just to be sure
  • Some reports claim that it doesn’t work too well on multiple monitors
  • It’s constantly being updated so be sure to check for updates over time

For the most part these themes are fairly simple and straightforward to install and shouldn’t cause too much trouble. But just beware they are not official Microsoft themes.

See here for all the download and installation instructions

Windows 8 Theme For Windows 7http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/05/05/windows-8-theme-windows-7-2/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/05/05/windows-8-theme-windows-7-2/#comments Thu, 05 May 2011 17:16:02 +0000 http://windows8news.com/?p=555 Microsoft is currently working on completing Milestone 3 of the Windows 8 development process. This basically means that a lot can – and will – change in the coming months. The user interface is no exception to that, even though it looks cleaner and more professional than that of Windows 7 already.

When the first desktop screenshots of Windows 8 appeared, several designers began to create themes for existing operating systems.

The latest is called 8 Skin Pack for 7. It was posted on Deviantart where it is available for public download. The theme looks very professional, which can be attributed to the fact that it goes beyond what standard themes can offer in Windows 7.

windows 8 theme

Here are the basics that you need to know before you start installing the Windows 8 theme:

  • It works on both 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Windows 7 SP1, works better under 32-bit according to the developer.
  • It is compatible with all language versions of Windows 7.
  • It is necessary to patch system files before you can install the theme.
  • Before you do that, create a backup of your system.

The developer has posted links to all necessary files and tools on the theme’s page.

If you ask me, then I’d say that this is the best looking Windows 8 theme so far.

New Windows 7 Bing Themeshttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/03/28/windows-7-bing-themes/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/03/28/windows-7-bing-themes/#comments Tue, 29 Mar 2011 03:30:07 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=11063 It’s been a while, but Microsoft has made an update to the Windows 7 Bing Update them pack. The theme pack in question is a unique addition to the collection of Bing-branded themes from Microsoft.  Here is how it works, Windows 7 has an option of allowing its users to set themes to customize their desktops the they want. But, the problem is that these themes are limited to a few wallpapers after which it all becomes  boring again. But the  “Bing Dynamic” theme changes things.  It updates your Windows 7 theme with new wallpapers directly from Bing.

Bing Dynamic

Actually, there is more, with Bing Dynamic Microsoft offered a special theme featuring auto-updating theme capabilities.  What this means is that Microsoft designed a theme pack, which is  capable of automatically refreshing the collection of wallpapers through an RSS feed.  So the plan was that for Windows 7 users who installed Bing Dynamic would receive new wallpapers from Microsoft at certain times throughout the year.  The idea was to enable the program  and receive two new photos from Bing every week for three months.  But that didn’t happen. In fact the program lay dormant.  There haven’t been any updates to the Bing dynamic theme since November but it appears it is going again with 2 new pictures just released.

Back To Life

But the Bing Dynmic theme has come back to life. The Bing Dynamics theme is now available for download through the Windows Personalization Gallery at no charge, and now that auto-updating has been switched back on, users have fresh reasons to download and install it.

You can get the Bing Dynamic at http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/downloads/bing-dynamic-theme

Presumably this Bing Dynamic program won’t stall and fizzle out. It’s not in Microsoft’s best interest to let it. So it would be a good program to jump into for the variety of themes and make your desktop more entertaining.

Note: Windows 7 themes can only be used in Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate editions.

Windows 7 Lovebirds, Valentine’s Day Themehttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/02/05/windows-7-lovebirds-valentines-day-theme/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2011/02/05/windows-7-lovebirds-valentines-day-theme/#comments Sat, 05 Feb 2011 12:11:50 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=10686 Microsoft has just released a new theme for all users of the Windows 7 operating system. The Lovebirds theme features five background images of birds, flowers and hearts. The pink wallpapers are definitely not for everyone but Microsoft would not have released the new theme if there was not a market for it, right?

The theme has been made available just in time for Valentine’s Day. The composition and colors suggest that Microsoft is majorly targeting female Windows 7 users with that theme. Take a look at the five images below.

You can download some or all of the images by clicking on them above if you want, or download the theme below.

The theme is provided in an executable format. A double-click on the file once it has been downloaded is enough to make it the default theme on the system.


A second Valentine’s Day theme is available at the gallery with less birds but bigger hearts. Take a look at the images below.

Microsoft Releases Narnia And Snow Angel Windows 7 Themeshttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2010/12/14/microsoft-releases-narnia-snow-angel-windows-7-themes/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2010/12/14/microsoft-releases-narnia-snow-angel-windows-7-themes/#comments Tue, 14 Dec 2010 23:36:21 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=10356 Microsoft has just released two new Windows 7 themes to the official Windows 7 Personalization Gallery. The two new themes are available for direct download and installation on the website.

The themes can be installed by downloading the linked file with the themepack extension to the computer running Windows 7. It is then installed on the system with a double-click on the downloaded file.

Narnia Dawn Treader is the first theme that has been released alongside the new Narnia movie that is currently airing in cinemas around the world. The theme consists of six Narnia wallpapers that you see below.

The second theme is called Snow Angels, and I’m not sure if this can be linked to a movie, comic, book or something like that, or if it is just a collection of snow angel wallpapers. Please let us know if you know more about the second theme.

Harry Potter Windows 7 Theme Releasedhttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2010/11/30/harry-potter-windows-7-theme-released/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2010/11/30/harry-potter-windows-7-theme-released/#comments Tue, 30 Nov 2010 16:46:24 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=10268 Microsoft is constantly pushing out new themes for the Windows 7 operating system, to provide users with more personalization options. The latest addition to the ever growing number of official themes is the Harry Potter theme for Windows 7, dedicated to the first part of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which is currently shown in cinemas around the world.

The theme should appeal to both young and old Harry Potter fans featuring six wallpapers of Harry, Hermione, Ron, Snape, Bellatrix and Voldemort.

The wallpapers are well done even though we would have wished for a bit more of variety as they appear to be part of the same “theme”.

The theme is available for download in our download center. Windows 7 users can install the theme with a double-click after downloading it. Everyone else may still download the theme and use an unpacker like 7-zip to extract the wallpapers to their system to use them without the theme file. Fans may even go the extra step and install a wallpaper changer to automatically switch between all, or only some, of the wallpapers of the theme.

You can alternatively download the wallpapers also from our download center.

Windows 7 Holiday Lights Themehttp://www.everything-microsoft.com/2010/11/23/windows-7-holiday-lights-theme/ http://www.everything-microsoft.com/2010/11/23/windows-7-holiday-lights-theme/#comments Tue, 23 Nov 2010 08:15:13 +0000 http://www.everything-microsoft.com/?p=10240 Personalization of the operating system, and offering ways to personalize Windows 7, seem to have been on the top of the feature list over at Microsoft. The Redmond company is regularly pushing out new Windows 7 themes, and while some of the themes look and feel like advertisement, others are related to events, the time of the year or just darn cute.

New themes give the operating system a vibrant feel. We all know that most computer users like to personalize their desktops with wallpaper images and maybe a different color and sound scheme. And that’s exactly what Microsoft delivers. Most of the themes offered are nothing more than wallpaper collections, but that’s fine because that’s what most users want.

Microsoft seems to have been busy pushing out new themes lately. Mike already mentioned the Windows Live Clouds theme that was released earlier today. It was not the only new theme though. Just in time for the holiday season is the Holiday Lights theme, available over at the official Microsoft Personalization gallery for Windows 7.

The theme comes with 17 different backgrounds for the holiday / Christmas season.
