How To Access Hidden Regional Themes in Windows 7

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

When you start the Windows 7 installation for the first time the first thing you will have to do is select a language, time and also a currency format.  This is where Windows determines what themes you’re to be presented with by default.
Being from the US you will then be presented with location specific themes from the US with desktop backgrounds such as scenery from Idaho, Maine, Oregon etc.
To access the other international themes, just copy and paste the following path into the search box and then hit Enter.


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


You can go in and grab the wallpapers.


Or you may go into the Theme folder double click on the the thumbnail to add it. 

Here you can see I added all of them and now they will be available under the My Themes section for when you want to change them around.


This trick will let you customize Windows 7 with hidden themes that already available.  If you want to get more themes you may just head over to Microsoft's official site.
