    Change Windows 8 theme to Window 7 default theme

    Hi There

    Could somebody advise me how I can change the Windows 8 Theme to the Windows 7 default theme. I cannot seem to find it on the system and the selection Windows 8 has is very limited.

    Not very keen on flowers

    You can't. If you want the win 7 theme you will have to go with a third party program or theme (style). You can fine a great many themes for win 8 on the internet by using Google, or there is Stardock's Windowblinds which allows you to use hundreds of different themes (though not all of them are worth having) they do have win 7 themes which give you the look you may be looking for (price $9.95). I use a theme which gives we the look of OS X (to each their own). . .Good Luck.

    If you want the Windows 7 background go to google images and type it you'll find it there.
