When you first install Windows 7, it asks
for your language, time and currency.
Based on your responses, it installs a set
of wallpapers and themes. If you choose
English (United States) for your time and currency format, for example, the
available desktop backgrounds and
themes will include a United States
section with scenery from locations such
as Maine, the Southwest and so on.
Hidden, though, are background scenery and themes from other English-speaking
countries -- Australia, Canada, Great
Britain and South Africa. Normally, you
can't access those backgrounds or
themes, but there is a simple way you
can install and use them: 1. In the search box in the Start menu, type C:\Windows
\Globalization\MCT and press Enter.
(Note: If Windows 7 is installed in a drive
other than C:, use that letter instead.)
2. Windows Explorer will launch and
show you a list of subfolders under C: \Windows\Globalization\MCT: MCT-AU,
MCT-CA, MCT-GB, MCT-US, and MCT-ZA.
Each subfolder has wallpapers for a
specific country: AU for Australia, CA for
Canada, GB for Great Britain, US for the
United States, and ZA for South Africa. For any of the countries whose wallpaper
and themes you want to use, go into its
Theme folder, for example, C:\Windows
Double-click the theme you see there
(for example ZA). 3. That will install a shortcut to the theme and wallpapers in
the Personalization section of Control
Panel. You can now use them as you
would any other theme or background,
by right- clicking the desktop, choosing
Personalize, and choosing a background or theme. They will be listed in their own
