Want to take a holiday to Britain or South Africa right on your Windows 7 desktop?

When you first install Windows 7, the system sets up a range of desktop theme options based on the country you live in. As far as you can tell, that's it. Australia. Done. No more countries for you!

But here's a way to dig out those hidden international themes so that you can bask in the glory of foreign lands. Expect to find Canada, Britain, USA and South Africa tucked away in the Windows\Globalization\MCT folder. Here, you'll see a range of folders for the different countries, and inside those folders are the themes. Just double click these themes and they'll be installed and added to your customisation options.
