How to Add All Regional Themes to Windows 7

Each version of Windows 7 will ship with its own regional themes depending on the default region of the operating system. So if you have an Australian copy of Windows 7, it will contain Australian regional themes. Each copy will only have themes specifically for their region. There are seven different packs in total: Australia, Canada, Germany, Great Britain, Japan, United States, and South Africa.Windows 7 Regionalized Themes

Fortunately, we have a little trick that will allow you to enjoy the beauty of all 7 theme packs. First, you need to download and extract this .rar file which contains all the theme packs. You can download the theme packs by clicking here.

Then you need to extract them to your MCT folder located at:
C:\windows\ Globalization\MCT

Once you’ve done that, download this registry file and double-click on it to add the following entry into your registry. This registry file automatically adds all your themes to the theme list under Personalization so you don’t have to manually add each theme pack.

If Windows 7 is not installed on a C Drive, make sure you open the registry file with notepad and change all the Cs to the appropriate drive.
