Best 2012 Windows 7 themes for your desktop

16/09/2012 — 17 Comments

Windows 7 is the world’s most used operating system. But only since recently. Two weeks before it used to be Windows XP. But now since Windows 7 became most used, new threat is coming, the Windows 8. So in order to make your desktop more appealing, I present you best themes from this year.

I wrote a great article about amazing Windows 7 themes from last year. But these are oldschool already. Even though I like oldschool, and I’m still using Windows XP with gaia theme. You can find gaia theme and many other beautiful themes here.

I posted a new article, Best 2013 Windows 7 themes,  be sure to check it out too.

To use a custom theme on Windows 7 you will need to install  Universal Theme Patcher.

Run in it Administrative mode (right-click > “Run as administrator”).

UAC must be turned off.
After patch, restart the computer to take effect. Now you can use the themes posted here.

A short notice – on most of the previews you’ll notice have different icons and Windows logo icon. These things might come inside the archive you download, but not always.In most dumentations you can find link for downloading these things.

    great themes btw, I really like them all. thanks for uploading.

  7. A big thank you 16/02/2013 at 09:57

    Why do I have to complete offers to download some of the themes. Ain’t no way am I gonna hand over my money to you guys.

    • No you don’t have to. Most of the offers require just a simple registration, login or a short survey. Only one third of the themes at that websites are locked with such offer, as I need to pay for that hosting.

      And shhhh, don’t tell this to anyone, you can actually download the themes without completing the offers. Just wait for 30 seconds and your link will magically appear :).

      • Please explain more, because every theme I tried was locked, not 1/3 like you indicated. And waiting 30 seconds did not make the download link appear.
