After our Starcraft 2 theme pack, we moved our attention to you, Mafia 2 fans and created Mafia 2 theme packs for Windows 7. Because we were really impressed of how cool the soundtracks for this game are, we used part of those to create the sound scheme for our themes. We have created sounds for: Windows logon and logoff, critical stop, device connect and disconnect, program error and others. Each theme pack is designed for a different resolution: 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1600x1200, 1680x1050 and 1920x1200. We have used different images that will be set as desktop background, in each theme pack. The wallpapers are changed every 15 minutes and the picture position is Fill.

Each of them contains different images that will be used as desktop backgrounds and automatically changed at a 15 minutes interval.

At the installation of Windows 7 you are prompted for your country and language. Based on your selection, a group of themes will be installed. Apart from that, Windows 7 will copy on your hard disk some additional hidden themes that you aren't aware of. There are a few hidden themes, considered by Microsoft to be regional themes which aren't accessible in the default list of installed themes. For example, for English distributions of Windows 7 you have themes for countries such as Australia, Canada, South Africa, Great Britain and the US. From this list, only one will be visible in your Personalize Control Panel, depending on the selections you made. I will continue our series on personalizing Windows 7 with an article in which I will show you which are the hidden themes in Windows 7, where to find them on your computer and how to install them.
