Windows 8, like the previous versions of Windows 7 and Vista, supports themes. But there are quite a lot of changes to theme, one of them being the change of format in Windows 8 along with support for auto colors of taskbar and Windows aero based on the wallpaper color. There is also support for panoramic themes, which means you can span them across multiple monitors.
Panoramic images will automatically extend across both displays of a dual-monitor setup if both monitors have the same resolution settings. If the displays are different sizes or have different resolution settings, a different image will appear in each monitor. Panoramic themes can be used on single monitor setups, but only the center part of the image will be visible. If you are using a multi monitor set up, here is a list of 5 best panoramic themes for your Windows 8/RT.
