Windows 7: Hidden International Destkop Themes

There some extra International desktop themes that are hidden in the Windows system folder that are included as part of the Windows 7 default installation. For example, the US theme includes six 1900x1200 images showing off National Parks and beaches. There are four others that would be available depending on which International version of the OS you were installing. These other themes include: Australia, Canada, South Africa, and United Kingdom.

To access these themes:
  • Under the Start menu type "C:\Windows\Globalization\MCT" and press Enter key.
  • Select the country folder you want to see the desktop images/theme (for example select MCT-US for the US theme).
  • To see the images for that countries theme go into the folder with the name of the country (for example in the in the MCT-US folder there is a another one called United States).  To access the theme itself open up the Theme folder, and double-click on the file with the .theme extension (note by doing this you will enable that theme).
