    how to get slideshow of all Pictures, not just one folder


    I have many folders with photos and want to run a slideshow of all of them but when I choose 'Pictures' Windows 10 will not show anything. I have to pick one folder. That folder will run nicely, but I would like to include ALL folders.

    Hi all !


    I've just find a way to do it without copying all your photos to another folder or anything else :


    1/ go to your parent folder that contains folders of the desired photos

    2/ in the search field, type *.jpg (or *.raw... depend of the type of your photos)

    3/ Explorer shows you all your photos

    4/ select all (CTRL-a), right click and choose "Set as wallpaper"

    5/ on the run command, type "control /name Microsoft.Personalization /page pageWallpaper" and select if you want to randomize, switch time...


    Hope that helps and sorry for my poor english

    Thake a look at this short video if needed : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GxLxEHd7-pU

    Drop this ( control /name Microsoft.Personalization /page pageWallpaper ) in a run prompt or the command line. It's the old GUI from 7/8 and will get you what you need.
