Windows 7 Starter And Home Basic Personalization Panel

27 Ago/10

Microsoft has released different editions of the Windows 7 operating system, all with distinct capabilities and restrictions. Especially the Windows 7 Starter and Home Basic editions have been limited in this regard, with the result that core operating system features are not supported by them.

It is for instance not possible to change the desktop wallpaper in Windows 7 Starter, or access other personalization options that the other Windows 7 editions offer.

The portable software Personalization Panel tries to change that by offering a solution to Windows 7 Home Basic and Windows 7 Starter users.

The developer has created two videos that demonstrate the programs capabilities in the operating system editions.

Windows 7 Home Basic

Windows 7 Starter

The software basically integrates several features into the Starter and Home Basic editions, namely:

  • Option to change themes in both editions
  • Ability to change wallpaper in Windows 7 Starter editions
  • Ability to change color schemes
  • Access to personalization features such as changing mouse pointers, sounds, screensavers, account pictures, display settings and icons.
  • Integration of a context menu entry to launch the software from the desktop right-click menu

The program is easy to use, and can be started without installation. It supports various display languages that are automatically set on startup. It does require the installation of the free software UxStyle though, which is needed to make the editions compatible with non-native themes.

The program download is available at the developer’s Russian website. (link, Google translate link, via)

Users of Windows 7 Starter and Home Basic have finally a tool at hand to personalize their operating system, almost the same way that users of other Windows 7 editions do.
