    Does anybody know how to get the desktop themes in win 7, so i can install them in win 10. The ones i am talking about is, Tower Bridge, White cliffs of Dover, Giant Causeway, etc.

    On my install they are in C:\Windows\winsxs\ there are various localisation versions under long folder names in there - you might have to stop hiding system files to see them.

    You can just search the Windows folder for *.jpg and sort by filesize and they will be the ones near the top.

    EDIT: AFAIK you can't just "port" the themes across as a profile though you can recreate some aspects by copying the wallpaper images, etc. over manually.

    If I could have been bothered I would have did this for you but bit busy at the moment.

    You would just open the theme file on windows 7 extract the wall paper and set it on Windows 10 then make up you own theme style.
