Hello Churin,

In addition, you can see all the different theme locations in the NOTE box at the top of this tutorial below.

Theme - Change or Save

Hope this helps,

Thanks everyone for your responses.
I replaced the Windows 7 theme with fish-in-centre theme from W7RC by clicking on the jpg file and the new theme showed up in My Themes.
How can I integrate the fish theme in the Windows 7 theme or vice versa so that I can sometimes switch between them?

Churin,

You can just save each theme to have a icon for both of them at the top in Personalize. This way all you have to do is click on either icon to have that theme automatically.

I am not sure if I made myself understood about what I wanted to do.
In "Architecture", for example, there are three varieties of themes in it. I want to make something like this which consists of Windows 7 and betta fish. Presently I have Windows 7 alone or the betta fish only.

I'm not sure I understand either. What is Architecture that you are referring to? You can create a custom theme using step 3 in the tutorial below as an example to have a mixture if different elements, then save it. Can you post a screenshot as an example of what you are wanting?

you can put any pictures you like into any folder, then make a desktop-slideshow theme out of them - is this what you mean?
