Themes

Hello, I recently made a mistake and did a complete HP system restore on my computer and now alot of stuff that was there is missing.

All the usal themes I had on there when you click on "properties" then "Desktop" and there used to be all those theme choices for my desktop like "High Contrast White" and "Lilac" and all the rest of it, none of its there anymore.

How do I get those back?

By complete system restore do you mean you did an installation of Windows 7 or went back and restored your PC to a previous time? If you did a complete install and the themes were on the PC when you received it HP may have loaded a Themes package and you probably have them on a CD/DVD, if not you might want to check their support website for your model and download what is missing. If these are things you downloaded and installed yourself you'll need to find, and reapply, them again.

It did the thing where there was a complete windows reinstall. But someone added Explorer 8 on here now and I havent a clue about any of it. I just keep being sent around in circles and so I thought hopefully someone could just be able to help me here on this forum.

I do have these bunch of HP CDs here but it doesnt say whats on any of them at all.

You know how you can select multiple wallpapers and have it switch or even shuffle through them? I wonder if they will make an option to either switch between themes or assign window colors to go with certain backgrounds, that would be nice. I think I'll talk to Microsoft about this :p
