    Desktop Background Slideshow Randomisation


    Has anyone else noticed that the RANDOMISE option on the slideshow for the desktop background doesn't seem to exist anymore?

    Or am I looking in the wrong place compared to win7/8.

    It's not there. Maybe they'll fix later on. They moved it to the settings app. No option to "SHUFFLE"

    I noticed it had moved but not impressed about the lack of shuffle :-(

    Thought it was me but having no shuffle is a backward step. My grandchildren used to watch waiting for a photo of themselves to pop up!

    I downloaded and installed Background Switcher as it has loads of options and actually puts picture name in top right corner!

    Drop this into the run command or a command prompt. " control /name Microsoft.Personalization /page pageWallpaper "
    Should get you what you are looking for without reg-edits or third party programs. :-D
