Themes in Windows 7

When I first became interested in themes a couple years ago, I was extremely disappointed with what Microsoft had to offer. Vista was a TERRIBLE machine for that. You had to work for quite a while to save any theme. But, Windows 7 makes themes extremely simple. First right click on your desktop and select personalize. You’re then at the new and improved Personalization Window. There you can choose from any one of the available Windows 7 themes. I found them all to be exemplary. I like how Microsoft is finally creating their own art style with the “Scenes” theme. This style started with the customization of the Zune, and appeared for the first time on an OS with Windows 7. Or, you could create your own theme by choosing any of the options at the bottom of the window: Desktop Background, Window Color, or Sound. Screensavers aren’t included in themes. They’re separate. When you click on one of these, and add backgrounds or change the sound or color, a new theme will appear in your Personalization Window known as “Unsaved Theme.” Simply right-click and press “Save Theme” or “Save Theme for Sharing” (If you want to email or upload a theme). You’ll be given the option to name your theme, and it’ll be there forever to change the look and feel of your PC (or at least until you either switch themes, or delete that theme). One thing that I really like is the Windows color mixer (which was also in Vista). Here you can choose any color of the rainbow for your window edges and taskbar. With themes in Windows 7, your PC will never be boring.
