How-To Install DreamScene on Windows 7

Remember Windows Vista? Although not he favorite MS release of all time, when I flipped over to Windows 7 from Vista there was a feature I missed almost immediately – DreamScene. The DreamScene background was a very groovy feature which wasn’t included in Windows 7 for whatever reason.  Although I found a work-around, I just noticed I never posted it here on groovyPost.  So if your looking to add back the DreamScene feature to Windows 7, read on!

Step 1 – Downloading the Dream Scene Activator

Dream Scene Activator is a great application by door2windows, which you can easily grab for free from here. The application is great and requires no more than a few clicks to set up.

Once you download the program, its icon should look like this:

Right-Click on it and select Run as Administrator…

In order to get Dream Scene to work correctly, you need to restart your computer. A bit of an annoyance, but really not much of a drawback…
