    Click on Add Folder & navigate to your pictures folder or any other folder which contains the pictures you wish to see & choose OK.

    SOlved!!


    Thank you Bastet, over the tops in Manchester - I'm twixt Halifax & Huddersfield.

    I created a new folder, named it after my grandson and moved into the photos I have of him. I then followed your advice and am delighted to say it works - a slideshow with split screens! He'll be amazed when he sees it. Thanks you ever so much - much appreciated!
