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.
