Following yesterdays release of Windows 8 Consumer Preview, Microsoft has now released the first two new themes for Windows 8 – Nightfall and Starlight Panoramic Theme. These themes are specially designed for Windows 8, featuring panoramic backgrounds for dual monitors.
Designed to extend seamlessly across dual monitors with identical resolution settings, this dramatic free theme for your Windows 8 Consumer Preview desktop also shifts your glass color to match each stunning, wide-angle image. Explore distant galaxies, verdant meadows, steep mountains, and serene seas without ever leaving your chair.
- This theme can only be used in Windows 8 Consumer Preview or Windows Developer Preview.
- Panoramic images will automatically extend across both displays of a dual-monitor setup if both monitors have the same resolution settings. If the displays are different sizes or have different resolution settings, a different image will appear in each monitor.
- Panoramic themes can be used on single monitor setups, but only the center part of the image will be visible.
