Users who have been using Windows 7 Starter or Home Basic edition for a while now probably have noticed that these editions come only with basic personalization features.
In other words, unlike Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise, and Ultimate editions the Home Basic & Starter editions don’t come with Personalization panel. In fact, you can’t even find the Personalize option in the desktop context menu. So, you are missing one of the best features of Windows 7. Worry not! We have a workaround to get this feature in Home Basic and Home Premium editions.
