Download New Themes in Windows 7

If you want to spice up your desktop easily in Windows 7 a good method is changing the Theme. If you’ve already exhausted the default Themes included in the OS, you might want to download new ones. Here we take a look at easily downloading new Themes from Microsoft’s Personalization Gallery.

To download new Themes right-click on the Desktop and select Personalize.

1 theme

Then under My Themes click on Get more themes online.

2theme

That takes you to Microsoft’s site where you can select from a variety of New and Featured themes from the Personalization Gallery.

3themes

Now you can open and apply the theme right away, or save a bunch of them for use later.

    @arks
    you dont have personalize cz maybe your running windows 7 STARTER which come standard with all netbooks
    @erion
    in this site there is a page called how to build a pc…in this tutorial GEEK explains how to install Vista
    do the exact steps and you can work things out
    @PRAFUL
    you can NOT enable aero on a 32mb display
    bt if you want to try some stuf try downloading your latest VGA driver
    if you are using onboard you can go to your BIOS and change its GRAM to more like …256 or 128
    and btw if your ram is 512 or 1gb i don’t recommend you to run 7 or Vista you should downgrade to XP
