Copying Windows 7 theme from one computer to another

Hello Experts -

I have a computer whose Windows 7 visual characteristics (theme) I like, including the wall paper.

Is there any way I can just copy over a few files to a second computer to make it appear the same?

When you create a theme, that theme is saved under:

C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\

If using custom wallpaper, you'll need to copy it too -

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\TranscodedWallpaper.jpg

In order to see the Appdata folder you have to make sure you have enabled the "Show hidden files, folders and drives" in the "View" tab of  "Folder Options" in your Control Panel.

All good suggestions guys. It is about 2:00 AM here in Boston. I am going to get some sleep. I'll talk to you all in the morning.
