Installing a Windows 7 theme gives you user interface change and thus refreshes computing experience.

So, in this article we are providing you with top 5 Windows 7 Theme, there appearance and downloading links. Go through the article and choose themes for better look of your Desktop / Laptop.
1. The first one is iOS 5 Skin Pack for Windows 7,this one is for those who wants to keep their system appearance similar to iPhone, iPad and iPod. This iOS Pack is the best option to make it look-alike Apple’s iOS. It changes the overall appearance of OS like Boot Screen, Windows Explorer and Login Screen etc.
The iOS 5 Skin Pack was developed by Hamed, who also developed other good-looking themes like Windows 8, Mac OS X, Android Skin Packs and more, which we’ll discuss in more detail later.

Note: Don’t forget to create system restore point for being on the safe hand side.
2. Another theme is, Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. Which is also a new theme designed by Hamed. As Lion is taking hold over the Mac kingdom, he designed this. Just like iOS 5 Skin Pack, Mac OS X Lion is easy to install using Mac UI theme. It can be installed through its *.exe file. But it is recommended to create a system restore point before installing any theme because some time it is quite difficult to uninstall any theme. Also disable your User Account Control.
Installation Procedure for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion:
Double Click the Mac OS X 10.7 Lion’s setup.exe file, which will pop-up the screen like this.
Then, you need to Click ‘Install’ to continue the installation process. There are also some options to install the UXTheme Patch and extra items as you can see on the screen. If you are not interested in installing any extra items, then you can uncheck the box and go ahead with the rest.
Once, the installation process is completed. It will ask you for Reboot your System to see the effective changes. So, click ‘Finish’ button to complete the process.
After restarting, your System will look like the screen below.
