Windows 10: Setting Desktop with One Image from Theme
Setting Desktop with One Image from Theme
With Windows 7 I had the ability to go into the Personalization settings and uncheck all of the images within a Microsoft Theme (such as "Waterfalls" or "Beaches") that I did not want to see. This gave me the ability to choose just one image from a theme to set as a permanent desktop background.
This menu was found by right-clicking on the particular theme I had chosen. In Windows 10 that menu is gone....
Therefore the themes just continue going from one image to the next and I have no control over which images I want, setting a timeframe for them to change (Used to have options such as 1 hour, 6 hours, 24 hours etc...), or the ability to customize the desktop background in the way I want.
Is this a Windows 10 design flaw or am I missing something? Why am I no longer able to customize a desktop background theme and choose 1 image anymore?
This link led me to the download add-on and I now have this functionality back!
Thanks so much!

Please don't tell me that's the reason, Home vs Pro?...

I enabled the dark theme and I really like the way it looks. I'm just trying to tweak it to my own preferences. I found 2 places in the registry where I thought the adjustments would work, but they have no effect. The second folder is just above the...
