When you selected a theme, such as Dangerous Creatures, you could see the color scheme, wallpaper, and desktop icons in the preview area. You could click the Screen Saver button to see a preview and you could click the Pointer, Sounds etc button to preview the sounds and animated pointers. When you clicked OK, the theme would be applied to the desktop.

I didn't get to use much in the Windows 95 OS as I was only using a 286-10mhz but having friends using this OS I installed this Windows 95 Plus pack quite often and the visual dynamic change to the Desk-top and other options, in those days was amazing. As I still have a copy of this CD and 2 original copies of Windows 95 I think I might set up a network for some of the old game.
... a lot of fun. Really took a trip down memory lane. Did you have Plus! installed in Windows 95? If so, what was your favorite theme?
... install it? I installed Microsoft Virtual PC 2004 on a Windows XP system and then set up a Windows 95 Virtual PC.
