One of the differences about Windows 8 is that its themes are not compatible with Windows 7. The extension with which they are saved is different, as well as the way they are packaged. Therefore you cannot copy and paste a theme from one operating system to another.

For them, the Command Prompt and the Run window are really useful. However, if the Command Prompt will always be useful, no matter how user interfaces evolve, does it make sense to still use the Run window? Here’s what I think and I’m hoping you agree with me.
Have you ever wondered why do we call them screen savers? Do they really save our screens? We’ve done a bit of research and found out that, due to changes in monitor technology, the term screen saver has become a misnomer in recent years. Let’s see why.

In a previous tutorial, we have shown how easy it is to use Windows Live Photo Gallery 2011 to create a slideshow as a screensaver.
