Microsoft Retires Dynamic Windows Themes

Microsoft Retires Dynamic Windows Themes

By Richard Hay for Windows Observer

When Windows 7 became available in October of 2009 one of the features of the OS was a new type of Windows theme, called Dynamic Themes, that allowed the images in that theme to be updated via an RSS feed.

Once installed any images added to the theme on a central server at Microsoft would update the RSS feed and result in the image being downloaded on the local Windows installation.

The themes were very popular and there were several created.

Remember any of these?

Aqua Dynamic
Fauna Dynamic
Flora Dynamic
Terra Dynamic
Insects Dynamic
Bing Desktop Dynamic
Bing Maps Aerial Imagery (US)
Bing Maps Aerial Images of Europe
