What is an .DESKTHEMEPACK file?
.DESKTHEMEPACK is Windows 8 Desktop Theme Pack File
A DESKTHEMEPACK file is a desktop theme file introduced with the Windows 8 operating system. It is saved in the .CAB format and contains background images (.JPG files) as well as a .THEME file, which contains colors, sounds, and other settings used to customize the Windows desktop. DESKTHEMEPACK files can be downloaded and shared with other Windows users.
You can install a DESKTHEMEPACK file in Windows 8 by double-clicking it. You may also create a custom theme by right-clicking one of "My Themes" in the Windows Personalization Control Panel and selecting "Save theme for sharing."
DESKTHEMEPACK files are specific to Windows 8 and are not compatible with Windows 7, which uses .THEMEPACK files for desktop themes. However, you can use the images contained in a DESKTHEMEPACK file as your desktop background in Windows 7 by following these steps:
NOTE: With the release of Windows 8, Microsoft updated the online Personalization Gallery to provide DESKTHEMEPACK files in addition to THEMEPACK files. You can view this gallery by clicking "Get more themes online" from the Personalization window in both Windows 7 and Windows 8.
