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

    Is as title says. Looking for a way to make the slideshow feature shuffle my photos when I play them, as opposed to playing through them in the order they sit in the folder. Win 7 had this option, and It was easily accessible. I may be being an idiot and missing it in front of my face, but I cant find it. Help is appreciated :)

    Hello Reynfall, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    If you like, you could use OPTION SIX or the tip in step 7 of OPTION FIVE in the tutorial below to turn on shuffle for the desktop slideshow.

    Hey, thanks for taking the time to view the thread, and thanks for the welcome :) I may not have been entirely clear with what I meant, either that or the feature may not exist :P I don't want to change my desktop background, I want to view my photos in a shuffled slideshow like I could in windows photo viewer back in windows 7. Is this possible? Or do I have to change my background to a shuffled slideshow, and then disable all desktop icons and minimize the taskbar, because that's what I'm having to do currently, and it's a tad unwieldy :) Thanks again :)

    Sorry, I had assumed you meant for a desktop slideshow.

    The tutorial below can show you how to restore Windows Photo Viewer to use again. :)
