Where are themes (theme pack) stored in Windows 7 folders?

TJMac asked on

Downloaded several W7 theme packs but went to a temp folder I have rather then into the themes folder.  Where are these themes located in the Windows 7 folders so I can transfer the new downloads to that folder? Thanks.

The default themes are stored in "C:\Windows\resources\Themes". The other .themepack files, the moment you run then, they're extracted and stored in this location:
