Best way to add, copy and delete wallpapers from Windows 7 Themes

Many Windows 7 Themes become a perfect choice when you consider the overall sound scheme, colour combination, screen saver, wallpaper etc.  However if you want to just change the set of wallpaper i.e. remove wallpapers of the existing theme or add your wallpapers to the current wallpaper of theme, below is the quickest way which is like one click solution.

  • Right click on your desktop > Personalize > Select theme for which you want to change.
  • Select Desktop backgrounds.
  • Open the folder which has the wallpapers or the image you want to add.
  • Keep this window right next to the Desktop backgrounds window.

  • Make a copy of it and rename the file to .zip from .themepack e.g. BlueWater.themepack to
  • Now use a uncompressor like WinRar or use windows default to extract into a folder.
  • Now look for DesktopBackground folder and you will find all images there.
