HOW TO ACTIVATE YOUR WINDOWS 7 HIDDEN THEMES AND WALLPAPERS

When installing Windows 7 for the first time, it’ll ask for your language, time and currency. Based on your answers, it will install that set of wallpapers and themes. For example, If you choose English (United States) for your time and currency format, the available desktop backgrounds and themes will include a United States section with scenery from locations such as Maine, the Southwest and so on… the hidden themes, are background scenery and themes from other English-speaking countries — Australia, Canada, Great Britain and South Africa. Normally, you can’t access those backgrounds or themes because they are out of reach, but there is a simple way you can install and use them:

IF YOU’D LIKE TO USE THEM THEN FOLLOW THIS SIMPLE STEPS BELOW

1. Go to your Start menu >> Run, in the Run type C:\Windows\Globalization\MCT and press Enter.

NOTE: If Windows 7 is installed in a drive other than C: use that letter instead.

2. Windows Explorer will launch and show you a list of subfolders under C:\Windows\Globalization\MCT: MCT-AU, MCT-CA, MCT-GB, MCT-US, and MCT-ZA. Each subfolder has wallpapers for a specific country: AU for Australia, CA for Canada, GB for Great Britain, US for the United States, and ZA for South Africa. For any of the listed countries whose wallpaper and themes you want to use, go into its Theme folder, for example, C:\Windows \Globalization\MCT\MCT-ZA\Theme. Double-click the theme you see there (for example ZA).

3. It will install a shortcut to the theme and wallpapers in the Personalization section of Control Panel. You can now use them as you would to any other theme or background. To locate the personalization, right click the desktop, choose Personalize, and choose a background or theme.
