Find hidden regional themes in Windows 7

Windows 7 features a nice collection of themes with which you can easily change the look and feel of your operating system. You can find them under the Personalize menu, right-clicking anywhere on the desktop. Depending on your area, you’ll get different sets of location specific themes – in my case, I have a Spain set with nice wallpapers displaying the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, the windmills in La Mancha and the coves of Majorca.
