    How do I choose a single picture from a theme?


    On Windows 7, you could download a theme then when you click on desktop background it would
    show all the pictures in the theme with check marks. Instead, on Windows 10, I click on desktop background and it just goes back to slideshow and gives me no option of choosing what picture I want.

    This is frustrating

    Does anyone have a fix for this?

    Thank you!

    Hello Josh, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    You could use OPTION SIX in the tutorial below for this.

    Hey! Yeah I scrolled down found that other guys Pete's thread and what you told him the second command worked for me.
    Thanks! There wouldn't be any chance of making a shortcut for that on my desktop is there?

    You're most welcome.

    I have something even better if you like. A "Personlize (classic)" desktop context menu that includes "Desktop Background" for this.
