  1. Themes are available for all Windows operating systems. It’s not a new feature for windows 7.

  3. Hi,

    Was just wondering, if i am creating wallpaper for win 7 and if the user is going to change the resolution from low to high, back and forth each time he logins. Can my wallper in one resolution fit on to different sizes without loosing quality? Or should i create one for each resolution…

    Please help

  4. @SHUJAAT:
    Your computer is too slow. Although Windows 7 is much more efficient than Vista, Aero graphics still requires a graphics card faster than what you have. It doesn’t have to be a discrete graphics card, even the newer Intel integrated ones will do.

  5. This is ridiculous, there is absolutely nothing about customizing a theme, just basic stuff that is was there since Windows 95.

     you should: right click on your theme->Click “save theme”(to save in personal) or “Save to share”(you can save your theme on your pc and share it to Mediafire, VnSharing,…and everyone can download on web)
