Windows 10: Windows 10 slideshow. want to select images, not folders
Windows 10 slideshow. want to select images, not folders
I looked around a bit and could not find an answer to my question. When making a slideshow in Windows 10 for the lock screen and the desktop background can you select individual images from folders instead of selecting an entire folder? Win 7 could do this and i used it and liked it a lot.
It's not a huge deal but i didn't want to make copies of the images to put in a "slideshow" folder and also leave them organized in their original folder so i can actually track them down later.
Just hoping that this minor feature is still here somewhere.
Kamina, I had the same question, and eventually found this website, which solved the problem for me: Desktop Background - Change in Windows 10
Specifically, go to "Option 6" on that page.
Bring up a "Run" dialog (windows-key / R)
Paste the following command into it and then hit enter:
control /name Microsoft.Personalization /page pageWallpaper
This will bring up a screen that looks very much like the old Windows 7 desktop background screen, with thumbnails of all photos in your wallpaper folder, with the ability to check/un-check individual photos.
Hope this helps!
Thank you very much, man. I didn't think anyone else cared about this lol. I will try it tonight.
