    Random Lock Screen Image


    Hello,

    I'm wondering if anyone knows of anyone who has made this program yet?

    Say I have 10 images that I really like, and every time I go to the Lock Screen in Windows 10, a random one of those ten images will be loaded as my Lock Screen image.

    I already have a Slide Show that plays on my Lock Screen a few seconds after my Lock Screen activates. Yet there are a select few images that I really like, and would love to see them randomly appear as the initial image on my Lock Screen.

    Thanks

    If you have your pictures use them in slide show.

    Yet the thing is that when I press Windows Button + L, I would only like to see a random one of the ten selected images that I like.

    and I guess slide show picks the first one time and time again. That is an interesting puzzle. Not sure how to randomize.

    Maybe another member knows of a utility. I did a search and the closest I got was random desktop.

    way to make slideshow shuffle photos, instead of displaying linearly?

    Yes, that is correct. I saw that tutorial by Shawn (Brink) that you posted, yet it only applies to the Lock Screen Slideshow, not the Lock Screen Image itself.

    I did a small video so you, and others, can have a visual to see what I'm talking about =)


    00:02 - That's when I press Windows Button + L (to lock the account), this is the Lock Screen Image that I have
    00:13 - Lock Screen Slideshow begins to play
    00:32 - I log back into my account. (Apparently the video recorder program that I'm using turns the password screen blank)
    00:35 - Back to the Desktop
    00:40 - I press Windows Button + L. Now I go back to my same Lock Screen Image.
    00:51 - Lock Screen Slideshow begins to play... etc.

    So notice when I pressed Windows Button + L, I go to that same image. I want a random one of ten selected images to load right when I press Windows Button + L. I hope this clears up some of the confusion. =)

    Thanks
