How to open hidden themes in windows 7

May 19th, 2009

I just installed windows 7 7127 for some time,and today I found there are 6 country’s themes been hided by windows 7.And we can open these 6 themes easily.

1.First go to %SystemRoot%\Globalization\ ,normally it’s C:\Windows\Globalization,then change your folder options to show hidden files and show protected systems files

    Or, to skip step 1 and 2, you can just directly go to %SystemRoot%\Globalization\MCT\

    Do hide protected system files again afterwards if you turned that off, or you will have two desktop.ini files on your desktop.
