More Help With Themes
There are many other tips and tricks to working with Windows 7 themes. For instance, if you are trying to optimize Windows 7 on a netbook or computer with low resources, you should choose a basic theme.
Another feature available in Windows 7 is called Aero Peek, which is sort of like having special X-ray vision that gives you the ability to peek through your open windows and view your desktop. To use it, all you have to do is point to the opaque sqare in the bottom right corner of your taskbar. Your windows will all become transparent so that you can view your desktop, icons and gadgets. However, you can only use this feature if you have applied an Aero theme.
If you have created or downloaded a bunch of Windows 7 themes and feel as though you simply have too many, or perhaps you downloaded a theme that you really do not care for, you can delete unwanted themes from your computer. First, you will need to apply a different theme if you are currently using the one you wish to delete as you cannot delete a theme while it is in use. Then all you need to do is right-click the theme in the Personalization window and select Delete Theme. Click Yes at the prompt that asks if you are sure you want to delete the theme.
While these tips are for Windows 7, you can have a custom theme that you love in earlier Windows versions as well. For example, How to Apply a Windows 7 Style XP Theme will help you have a Windows 7-like theme in XP!
