Windows 7 default themes are located here: C:\Windows\Resources\Themes if you were to copy a saved theme into this location it would appear with the other Windows 7 themes under a new heading of “Installed Themes”.

On a clean install of Windows 7 there are 6 “Aero” themes and 6 “Ease of Access Themes” you can select these by doing the following:

1. Right click a blank area on your desktop to bring up the context menu.

2. Left click on “Personalize”

3. Left click on a theme of your choice and Windows will apply the theme. If you were to customise the Windows 7 background or Window colour, your new theme will appear under the heading of “My Themes” called “Unsaved Theme” at the top of the window.

4. To name your theme right click on your “Unsaved Theme” and click “Save theme” you will now be prompted to name it before saving. The location of your saved theme will be here: C:\Users\(Profile name)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\name.theme

In some versions of Windows 7, the default theme can relate to the regional settings (language and keyboard layout) chosen on
installation. These themes can form one of the 6 Aero themes even when all other themes have been removed from the C:\Windows\Resources\Themes location.

The regional themes are located here: C:\Windows\Globalization\MCT

Note: The MCT folder is hidden so you will need to show hidden files and folders first or type the full path into a windows explorer address bar.
