Is it a deliberate visual pun/joke, or is it just a happy accident?

It's taken nine days for me to notice it, not very observant! I think I'd better go back to my normal Black desktop.

Betta fish, commonly known as a Siamese Fighter in the Aquariam world....Nice picture, but hope it's not an omen :))

Go to this hidden folder C:\Windows\Globalization\MCT. There are photographs in the Wallpaper directory for 5 countries. If you double-click on the .theme file in the Theme directory, you get a wallpaper background slide show through all the pictures for that country.

Be aware that the UK theme sets the Taskbar to blue, change it by right-clicking the Desktop > Personalize > Windows color (at the bottom) and play around with the colors and the slider.

I've gone back to plain black with Book Antiqua fonts - it's better suited to my curmudgeonly personality.

Tool is useful, I like a slightly bolder font, and this allows you to tune your monitor as you prefer.
