There are many different Windows 7 themes available for download that can help you spruce up your laptop or desktop display. With themes ranging from Spiderman to Angry Birds and everything between, there is sure to be something for everyone.

There are themes available online that are formatted to almost every kind of Windows operating system in use, such as Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP and even a few for Windows ME. Searching for various themes on websites like this one is the perfect way to find just the theme you are looking for to personalize your computer.

There are many reasons you might want to download a Windows 7 theme onto your computer. Perhaps you just upgraded to Windows 8 or 8.1 and want to go back to the styles and sounds that you are familiar with. Or maybe you are using an XP or Vista and want the sleek modern look. Whatever the reason, the Windows 7 theme is there waiting for you. An application of the Windows 7 theme to your computer gives you virtually all of the features of Windows 7 on your current operating system. Let’s discuss some of the features of the Windows 7 theme.

The first, and most important, feature is the absence of the non-essential programs, which allows for the freeing up of space on your desktop. Many of the programs installed on Vista, such as Windows Live Writer, are not used by the majority of Vista owners. However, these programs are not gone for good once removed from your computer; they are still available for download on the Windows Live Essentials website.

A second feature of the Windows 7 theme is the significantly uncluttered

interface. The interface is much cleaner than those of previous Windows operating systems, producing less strain on the eyes as a result. The task bar and the system tray have been totally reworked to allow for the dragging and dropping of icons that you would like to be hidden. This eliminates the distress that we all feel when we see 35 icons spread across the system tray. The new task bar automatically clusters windows that you have opened or minimized, leaving you with more space to operate.

Microsoft has also made it easier to determine what printers you have installed on your computer and what they are up to. With the Windows 7 theme, all you have to do is click "Start" and then "Devices and Printers" so they all come up.
