    Just go to C:\Windows\Globalization\MCT ,there are 6 hidden themes there.
    You can double-click the .themes file under sub-directory Theme to install the theme
    Note:You need to change your folder options to show hidden and system protected files.

    I am sorry if most of you already know this or some one else had posted it here .:razz:

    I have Build 7100 and it's in there. Themes for UK, US, Canada, S.Africa and Aus. The Canadian one is superb.

    Strange

    I have build 7100 downloaded from the Microsoft website, and I don't see the MCT folder (even on Show all files)

    BUT

    If i type in C:\Windows\Globalization\MCT

    It will go to the folder

    you should unclick in the folders options "mask the system protected files" then you will see the MCT appear. In French version I get french and canadian themes, it's nice...

    Thanks, I didn't know this. It works. It gives you some interesting wallpapers with those new themes. :)


    1. Folder Options > View > Show hidden files and folders
    2. C:\Windows\Globalization\MCT:
    go inside each of the 6 subfolders > Theme > Click on theme file.


    My build is 7201.

    If you don't want to change options, go to C:\Windows\Globalizations, and put MCT in the address bar, it will show it, At least in my version (RTM 7600 Spanish language natively) it has 2 themes: Spain and Mexico
