It’s that time again…beginning of a new month!  That means that Smashing Magazine has released their monthly wallpaper pictures again.

Not as many St. Patrick’s themed ones as I would have expected.  Here are your March 2010 Windows 7 Theme Packs for the wallpapers though…including all images (note: some ‘without calendar’ images are not provided by the authors) unfiltered.

NOTE: I know last month had some issues with the .themepack files.  I tested these ones on 2 computers and was able to install them.  My previous issue appears to have been with creating the packs on a 64-bit machine which I’m investigating with the Windows team.

Special thanks to the Windows Team Blog for hosting these theme packs for us all!

Smashing Magazine February 2010 Wallpaper

As you could expect, February entries are full of a lot of Valentine type stuff.  Here are your February Windows 7 Theme Packs for the wallpapers though…including all images (note: some ‘without calendar’ images are not provided by the authors) unfiltered.

UPDATE PLEASE READ (4-Feb):

There is an issue with the .themepack file for some reason.  Although I’m using the prescribed mechanism for creating these it is not functioning as easily as the January one.  I’ve got some folks on the Windows team looking into it, but no resolution yet.  In the interim, you can extract the .themepack file using 7-Zip (a free and great utility) and then double-click on the .theme file where you extracted it.  This should trigger the installation of the theme.
