    So I turn on the computer today and add that folder as a Slideshow again without doing any of the above first. Apparently this time I was able to add that folder with no red message under it.

    I did all the methods that apply from that link.

    I tried WinArea thing, yet wasn't able to find the option for the Slideshow. That zip file had 2 different exe formats. The first 64x format in the folder is the one that worked, the second 64x format did not work.

    Anyways, I locked the screen and waited, and I see my slideshow finally! I think it got fixed initially when I didn't see that red message. So thanks for the help

    Great pepanee! Glad it works now. :)

    Sometimes it takes a little patience and multiple actions (should work in the first place).
