Customize your Pc for windows 7

Today my friends i will show u something fun to do with your pc which will make it look epic i made mine and it looks something like this :) I used some extra stuff to make the icons black and some other software but the basic things are the ones below.

So lets begin:

1. Change the profile picture

To change your profile picture, go to > Start and type > User Accounts into the bar that says > Search programs and files, then open the respective entry under > Control Panel. Next, select > Change your picture. You can now choose a default image or click > Browse for more pictures… at the bottom of the list to access your own files.
Once you have selected an image click the > Change Picture button and you’re done.

2. Add Desktop Gadgets

Gadgets are tiny tools that sit on your desktop. They add functionality and quickly let you complete tasks without launching a large program. Some of my three favorite Windows 7 gadgets are:
  • Clipboard Manager - Manage your clipboard history, search entries, store favorite clips, and more.
  • Skype Gadget - Keep a minimized Skype interface on your desktop and save space.
  • The Magic Folder - Automatically sort files into pre-defined folders based on their file extension.

To browse, discover, and install gadgets, visit the Windows Live Gadget Gallery. To launch existing gadgets, go to > Start and type > Desktop Gadgets into the bar that says > Search programs and files, then open the respective entry under > Control Panel.
The ones that are in the picture are from the midnight theme. If u want them just google it or i will link it at the end of the blog.

3. Change The Windows Theme

Changing the theme will have the greatest impact on your system in terms of look and feel. And you’ll be surprised how easy it is. > Right-click desktop and select > Personalize. You can now select a default theme, get more themes online, or create your own.

You can also make your own something like a slide show from your favorite images.

4. Add Toolbars To Taskbar & Enable Quick Launch Bar

A toolbar located in your taskbar can provide instant access to often used programs, for example iTunes. Simply > right click Taskbar, expand > Toolbars, and check the ones you would like to see.
For those mourning the Windows XP Quick Launch bar, don’t despair. There is a hack to bring it back. Follow the same steps outlined above and select > New toolbar…, enter the following path > %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launchand click > Select Folder. The Quick Launch bar will appear, but it needs more customization. > Right-click Quick Launch and uncheck > Show title and > Show Text to make it more compact. You can also uncheck > Lock the taskbar and then > drag and drop Quick Launchinto place.customize windows 7
