Windows 7: Automatically cycle through themes?

Automatically cycle through themes?

Is there a way to have Windows 7 automatically cycle through the aero themes?
I really like the pictures in a good number of the country-specific themes and would like Windows 7 to just cycle through the themes automatically instead of my switching them every few days.

You could copy the pictures you really like to a new folder and then create your own theme with those pictures. The country specific pictures are located on your system drive (I'll assume C: here) so C:\Windows\Globalization\MCT\MCT-(country)\wallpaper. You need to have "show hidden files folders and drives selected in windows explrer to see the MCT directory. Hope this helps.

Where are the pictures stored when you download the themes from the microsoft website? (i.e.: the Personalization Gallery - Windows 7 themes, wallpapers, and gadgets - Microsoft Windows link when you click "get more themes online")

I just downloaded the Avatar theme to see where it gets put. For my system, after I clicked on download and told it to open with themepackfile, I found it in: C:\Users\(me)\Appdata\Local\Temp

EDIT: Upon further investigation, I found the actual bmp files at: c:\users\(me)\Appdata\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\
