Get Dynamic Windows 7 Themes to Automatically Add New Backgrounds to your PC

Windows 7 themes now include a brand new feature which adds a dynamic element to themes by automatically updating the theme with fresh images using an RSS feed. In this article, find out how dynamic themes work and check out a couple of Dynamic Windows 7 themes that you can download to your PC.

How Dynamic Themes Work

Lets say that you are connected to the internet. When you subscribe to a Windows 7 Theme  RSS feed, your computer automatically downloads new images to a special folder whenever they are added to the Microsoft theme server. You will be able to see these new images when you use the dynamic theme.

      Dynamic themes are cool, especially the good ones. On a sidenote, the RSS subscription is also possible for screensaver, which I find even more useful.

      Microsoft has definitely a lot of cool themes, but they are not so much into Gaming. If you want another dynamic theme with gaming wallpapers, you may download it from my site

      Hopefully you like it!

      By the way, first time I see the Google+ Circle box on a page Eddie, looks good. Not sure what I should think about Google+ yet .. they still have a lot of work to do.
