Most of you may be aware of the RSS fed dynamic themes for Windows 7, that Microsoft has introduced with this iteration of the Windows operating system. These RSS based dynamic themes add new backgrounds automatically to your Windows 7 desktop, via an RSS feed.
We have already covered some RSS fed dynamic themes like Bing Search RSS theme, Bing Maps and Paramount Pictures. In this article, we will tell you how these dynamic themes works.
RSS fed dynamic themes for Windows 7
See, when you subscribe to the themes RSS feed, your Windows PC will automatically download the new wallpapers whenever they are added to the Microsoft theme server. So whenever you connect to the Internet, the images or desktop wallpapers will get downloaded to a special folder on your PC and get displayed on your desktop automatically.
This way you don’t need to change your theme or wallpapers often – and you can expect to be surprised anytime with a new wallpaper.
Rest assured that all the JPEG files that get downloaded are safe and secure, as they get downloaded from some Microsoft server only.
Do note that to be able to use such dynamic themes, you will have to be logged in as an administrator or a regular user. Guest users may get to see a dark screen instead.
