Spring is here! How do I know? Well, reason #1 is that last weekend brought some of the first sunny weather the greater Seattle area has seen in what seems like months, and I was able to dig weeds out of the rock garden without wearing a jacket. And second, because daffodils and crocuses are blooming everywhere. And thirdly because of Easter bunnies, marshmallow peeps, and decorated eggs; they’re a sure sign. So we’ve gathered a collection of pretty colored eggs to help bring a breath of spring to your Windows desktop.
After egg-shaped treats, sunshine, and birdsong, one of the other best aspects of spring is baby animals. Seriously – can anyone resist the cuteness of these fuzzy baby ducks? If you don’t want everyone who catches a glimpse of your desktop going “aawww!” you probably shouldn’t download it.
It isn’t new, but our Bunnies theme is just as adorable now as when we first published it.
If you have an older version of Windows or prefer to just use a single desktop image instead of a theme, here are some wallpapers you might like:
In other springtime news, Kinect Rush: A Disney•Pixar Adventure just released, letting gamers use the power of Kinect to enter the worlds of Pixar. You can bring some of the fun of this new Xbox release to your Windows 7 desktop, too, with our new Kinect Rush theme.
We also have a new theme celebrating Kinect: Disneyland Adventures.
And finally, for a new-game-theme trifecta, we recently created a theme featuring some of the stunning aerial views from Microsoft Flight: Hawaiian Adventure, as well as some music and sound-effects from the game. The new-email sound is my favorite.
That wraps up my update on the newest Windows themes, but as usual lots more is on the way, so keep on visiting the Windows Personalization Gallery for new Windows 7 themes and wallpapers.
How do I determine which themes support a dual monitor configuration? I'm not fond of two monitors showing copies of the same background....
@TheRandomTexan - thanks for your question. If you use Windows 8 Consumer Preview with dual monitors, you will automatically see different background images in each monitor (for more information, see windowsteamblog.com/.../windows-8-themes-panoramas-auto-color-and-more.aspx). When using multimon, WIndows 8 does this automatically with any theme that isn't panoramic (extending across both monitors). So in short, all our themes will provide the behavior you're looking for, if you are using Windows 8 Consumer Preview.
Of course there is not a single sight of a cross or Jesus in those wallpapers. Why? For political reasons? Atheists, Muslims, etc. don't celebrate Easter anyway so what's the problem?
@Orange because anything religion in it is a touchy subject so most people will just avoid it altogether.
These are great! I really like the eggs and baby ducks! I wonder why there's not a theme with cute baby lambs! Maybe coming soon? If I could make one suggestion that would be it! Another suggestion, would be a theme with hand painted traditional ethnic Ukrainian Easter Eggs. That would make some beautiful folk art to put the computer screen.
Love the Easter egg theme. It's April and it is really nice to have the theme for the season.
jennifer did you do those cause those are beautiful eggs plus my aunt is good at doing those things as well she made a winnie the pooh bear cake for my neice on her 1st birthday and its so beautiful.
