Access Hidden Regional Themes in Windows 7

Windows 7 offers you location specific Aero themes based on the language and location you pick during installation.  Here we will take a look at accessing other hidden themes from different countries.


When you first start the Windows 7 installation the first thing you will do is select a language, time and currency format.  This is where Windows determines what themes you’re presented with by default.

Apart from the default themes that you get you also have some hidden themes--
To access the other international themes copy and paste the following path into the search box and hit Enter.

    C:\Windows\Globalization\MCT


In the MCT folder you will find additional themes for Canada, Australia, South Africa, and Great Britain.

You can go in and grab just the Wallpapers…
Or go into the Theme folder double click on the thumbnail to add it.

Congrats, you have some cool new themes to flaunt !!
