For example, you can change the appearance of Windows 7 to suit your taste, including selecting a new desktop background, setting up a desktop slide show, choosing a screen saver, and changing the Windows 7 color scheme.

You can also change the way Windows 7 works to make it easier to use and more efficient. For example, you can change the icons that appear on the Start menu and you can configure the taskbar to make it easier to use.
