Beautiful Birds Windows 7 Theme Pack:
This “Beautiful Birds” theme pack is released by Microsoft China and contains 17 beautiful wallpapers of birds – swans, flamingoes, peacocks, and other exotic birds in nature, you’ll definitely love this theme pack for sure.
The Echoes of Past theme pack time-travel back to the Age of Steam with a treasure-trove of antique images bathed in a golden Victorian light. The theme comes with 16 exclusive wallpapers portraying images from the past.
These are Microsoft’s official themepacks, so they do not require any third party applications for installation. Windows 7 users can install these two themepacks with a double-click after downloading them. The themes can then be customized from “Personalization Gallery”.
Of course, the Beautiful Birds and Echoes of the Past Windows 7 Theme Packs are designed to integrate seamlessly only with Windows 7 (Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate editions). However, Users running other operating systems like Windows Vista and Windows XP may still download the theme packs and use an unpacker like 7-zip to extract the wallpapers to their system to use them without the theme file. Fans may even go the extra step and install a wallpaper changer to automatically switch between all, or only some, of the wallpapers of the themepack.
