Enable Aero, Themes and Wallpapers for Windows 7 Home and Starter Editions

Desktop customization options like themes, wallpapers and Windows Aero support are not available in basic editions of Windows 7 which includes home basic and starter. We had covered a free app, Personalization Panel, which lets you change the wallpaper and aero color in starter editions. But now the same developer [Russian] has released a patch which enables you to use themes, wallpapers and Windows Aero effects including Flip 3D on starter editions.

Features of the Patch;

  • Aero, transparency and features like Win + Tab (Flip3D), Aero Peek and Aero Shake will work.
  • You can use *. theme files, *. themepack files and *. msstyles files.
  • Change wallpapers, including the automatic changing.
  • Full color design.
  • Support for third-party themes.

In short, you can transform your Windows 7 Home, or Windows 7 Home Basic to a full Windows 7 Ultimate with regard to desktop customizations.

You can download the patch from here.
