    Lost option to use top-rated photos for desktop background slideshow


    Windows 10 customization has been a bit of a moving target. The latest casualty was the ability to have Windows cycle through my top rated photos as the background slideshow. Now, I only have the option to point to a folder for a slide show.

    This was a really cool feature b/c it meant I could cycle through my favorite pictures without having to move (and likely duplicate) them. Does anyone know how to recover this feature without having to move my pictures?

    @taward First, add this context menu item to your Desktop Context menu. It's here on Tenforums as a tutorial. Click the Personalize (Classic) option, then click Desktop Background. You wil get a screen similar to this (on my machine) where there is an option for Top Rated Photos. Hope this is what you are looking for. The options on the screen should be self-explanatory.

    Thanks! It's not quite what I was looking for but this will get the job done. There used to be an option in the "modern" settings app but it's disappeared.
