Bing Celebrates Its One-Year Anniversary With A New Official Windows 7 Theme

Bing has just turned one. Its first year of existence has been a mixed bag. While it has been fairly well received, it hasn’t really succeeded in eating away Google’s market share. Yusuf Mehdi, senior vice president, Online Audience Business Group, said, “It’s been a whirlwind 12 months, with the team shipping tons of new cool features aimed at making it easy and fast to make key decisions and just get stuff done. We wanted to take a short break to say thanks”.

As a special treat to Windows 7 users, Microsoft has released the third Bing theme pack featuring some of the best background images (wallpapers) used by Bing.


Our latest Bing’s Best Windows 7 theme pack gives you even more great Bing homepage images for your desktop. Bing’s Best 3 lets you gaze at a dying star, soar over an underwater sinkhole, and get up close and personal with an adorable baby sea turtle. There are 19 wallpapers in all”, stated Stephanie Horstmanshof, Bing Managing Editor.

You can download Bing’s Best 3 Windows 7 theme from the official personalization gallery (direct link).

Microsoft Releases New Windows 7 Themes

Everyone loves goodies and Microsoft seems to have finally realized this. They have been regularly adding new stuff to the Windows 7 Personalization Gallery. Earlier this month, we had covered the special Christmas Theme – Twinkle Wish. Now, Microsoft has released some more themes to get you in the holiday spirit. Do check them out. Cat and dog lovers will be pleasantly surprised.


The theme that caught my attention was Summit on the Summit. Summit on the Summit (or SOTS) is an expedition to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro organized by the Grammy-nominated musician Kenna.


Starting January 7th, Kenna and friends will climb Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise awareness about the global clean-water crisis. During their climb, they will be posting notes, pictures and tweets on the website Microsoft and HP are the technical sponsors for the event and the climbers will be using Windows 7 and Windows Live Messenger for staying connected. A SOTS themed Windows Live add-on pack is also available here.

Microsoft will obviously benefit from the partnership due to the associated attention. Nevertheless, it is nice to see Microsoft doing their bit to raise awareness about the campaign.

Ultimate List of Windows 7 Themes

One of the best things about the new Windows 7 operating system, aside from the entire slew of new features, is the plethora of themes that users are making. From sullen and dark to cheerful and vibrant, these themes are spread over a variety of different artistic styles and usage of the abstract and the surreal to create an atmosphere for you to work on.

Like the other Ultimate Lists here are seven of the best Windows 7 themes mostly from the incredible deviantART.

Waterbomb and Windows 7


With a desktop like that, I’m sure everyone would want one instantly!

Theme for Winodws (sic) 7


Though we do not know if the typo in the title was intentional or not, we certainly know that this theme has one of the prettiest wallpapers around coupled with a minimal design!

Only Black (Windows 7 RC)


Yet another simple but effective theme for Windows 7 (The link takes you to the newer version).

Alternative for Windows 7


A mashup of the aero style from Vista and the original Windows 7 theme, this one shines with beautiful color usage!

Windows 7 DarkClear


For me, dark colors with morbidly fascinating blue make for a clear (forgive the preceding pun and the proceeding internet slang) WIN!

Thank you “K.” for pointing out that this is only for Windows XP. I overlooked that. (It stills looks very pretty!)

Aerosnap 7


After that darkening cloud full of dark themes, here’s a light transparent one that would definitely have many scurrying to download this!

AeroVG Se7en


Yet another simple but clearly efficient theme!

Soft 7 1.7

Soft7_1_7_for_Windows_7_UPDATE_by_AP_GRAPHIK (1)

A cool blue Windows 7 theme!

ThaImpact VS


Yet another shiny black theme. Seems to be loads of these nowadays!


Win7_Blend__For_Windows_7_v1_2_by_zainadeel (1)

A light and blended theme for the OS.

Neon Windows 7


This is one really glowing Windows 7 theme. I personally like the customized Firefox icon. Sleek!

Red Fusion


For all those who like red. Not exactly a mod of the Neon theme (though the maker is the same!)

Clearscreen Sharp


A clear blend theme again!



The DS in the name does not carry the same implication as that of the Nintendo system!
