    How many of these themes have system sounds included? I don’t think Ive noticed that in others.

  2. B. K. Cobb

    Any way to get these photos outside of the theme (so I can use them in my family’s Vista and XP systems)?

    What B. K. Cobb said! I would LOVE to see wallpapers of Irish landscapes (you would not be able to put up too many!) since I still on XP!

    I’m Irish and to me thats a crap theme

    @B. K. Cobb & Lady Fitzgerald – You can easily grab the wallpapers and system sounds from this theme for use on your systems. Download the theme and use a program like IZArc, 7-Zip, PeaZip, etc to unzip the file (listing may show as Extract based on which app you are using). ^_^

    For this particular theme you will see a folder named “DesktopBackgrounds”, the 22 sound files, and the theme file itself. ^_^ Hope this helps! ^_^

    @Rob – This particular theme is a standout for the system sounds it has. Usually the themes from Microsoft do not have the sounds included, so definitely an unexpected bonus here. ^_^

    The themes from VikiTech that we feature not only include system sounds, but also desktop icons to match up with the themes. So those themes provide a much better desktop experience overall from the beginning. ^_^

    The ones from Microsoft are still good though, all that a person needs to do if desired is find icons to go with their themes and add any custom sound files they like to use. ^_^

    @Lady Fitzgerald – An Irish landscapes wallpaper post sounds like a great idea. ^_^ I am adding that to my list and will try to have it up soon on one of these upcoming Saturdays. ~_^

    I don’t know about that AsianAngel, allot of the themes I’ve used lately have sound.

    Many of the best of Bing have sound, as well as many of the more common themes have some crazy sounds. One that I don’t remember the name of, has some funny farm sounds on it, and the Allen Wake theme has some cool sounds as well as most of the MS game themes.
