Allows users of the previous operating system access to some changes from the next iteration
Windows 8 / Windows 7 / Windows Vista / Windows XP
Using the Windows 7 Theme, you can transform your Windows Vista OS. This simple-to-use theme makes your Vista look just like Windows 7.
This is NOT a system upgrade, and it's purely for aesthetics. If you want to upgrade your operating system, you will have to download an update or upgrade. This is not an operating system. This is just a 'skin', more commonly known as a 'theme'.
All of the official Windows 7 wallpapers and icons are included in the theme. It will even transform your task back. It takes all of the rounded curves of Vista and gives them sharper, clearer edges. It will look just like you're using a Windows 7.
Be sure that you've enabled custom themes usage for your PC, otherwise, you won't be able to install the Windows 7 Theme on your computer. To use it, simply copy Windows 7 Theme file to your 'themes' folder (C:WINDOWSResourcesthemes). You will be given a pop-up prompt. Follow the instructions and you'll soon be enjoying the cool new look of your PC.
If you've ever used a theme for your PC before, you know that this is not an update or upgrade for your system. This is a fun way to enjoy your PC, and personally, I love using skins to make transitions to or from operating systems easier and more fun.
This is highly recommended for anyone who wants to get an idea of what to expect before they upgrade their system, or for anyone who misses the look and feel of Windows 7 now that they have upgraded.
