Windows 7: Creating Themes from Old Theme Files - Background Changes

Creating Themes from Old Theme Files - Background Changes

Hi - I am trying to create some themes from old theme files. I'm using a 3rd party theme program to "apply" the theme elements. Then I'm going into the Personalize area in Windows (right click and pick Personalize) and there I save the theme. My problem comes when I go back to the 3rd party program to select and apply the next theme. When I do this, the background changes on the theme that I just saved in the Personalize area (even though I've saved the theme). I've tried switching to another theme before I change to the next theme in the 3rd party theme program but the same thing happens (the background changes for the theme that I saved a few moments ago). I've even tried going into Desktop Background (in the Personalize area) and clicking save changes there but it still doesn't work right. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for any help!

Grouping for themes and background images
Hi! Since Vista background images are grouped in several categories. In Windows 7 this is also true for themes. The groups items are shown in don't seem to be related to the physical location of the files. So I wonder how to change the groups items are shown in. Could someone give me a...

Seven creating its own themes?
I just had a rather odd experience. My display suddenly quivered and blinked, and then I had a brand new theme. Instead of my normal theme (custom desktop, custom installed aero theme), I had a different desktop, and high contrast #1 theme on my screen! In Personalization and Appearance, the new...
