Windows 7: What folder are themes saved too?

What folder are themes saved too?

I downloaded all of the theme's from Microsoft's website. They are saved as ".themepack" Where do I need to move them to in order for them to show up with the rest of the "Aero Theme's", instead of under "My theme's"?

Make sense?

Can't place them with Aero themes.
Can place them with installed themes.

C:\Users\{your user name here}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Themes

Darn. I had them under Windows\Resources\Aero\ i believe......

I'll check with what you have.

Why can't I? Shouldn't it be just a matter of putting a file in a certain folder?

Nah. I have themes same place as the Aero ones

(C:\Windows\Resources)

but they still show up under installed themes. You can give it a try on your system though. No harm.

If you click on the themepack, they should install at ...

C:\Users\*yourname*\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Themes

That's where mine went anyway.

How to use themes modified and saved in XP, in Windows 7?
I have a bunch of themes I designed in XP by modifying the Windows Classic theme in Properties > Appearance. How can I get them to work in Windows 7? The file extension is .theme. I tried putting them in C:\Windows\Resources\Ease of Access Themes, but that didn't seem to work. Thanks, Ellen
