    10240 NO shuffle


    Even with build 10240, seems like slideshow shuffle might be permanently gone.
    They now use albums with sequential displays.
    So, like I do, one has about 10,000 wallpapers, sequential displaying is a problem.

    It will be necessary to use 3rd party wallpaper shufflers if available.

    Do they really have those kind of programs?

    Probably. You have to be a dedicated eye candy guy to need them, though.

    There is a simple fix for that. I had same issue, and discovered this. The Interval is in milliseconds, so mine is 30 seconds. Shuffle set to 1 does just that, shuffle.

    Yesterday, I was on 10240. NOT running 24 / 7, and booting many times a day.
    So, this morning, I attached 10240 to the board and NOT READY FOR PRIME TIME.
    The system froze and became unusable. Ctrl Alt Del did not work. Right clicks did not work.
    NO start menu. Really ? This is RTM ?

    Rebooted and got the beachballs for 5 minutes.
    Finally gave up and am posting this from build 9200 / server 2012.

    @Tomcat ok. When I get back in, I'll try your recommendation.
    That doesn't change the fact that "shuffle" is not an option in the settings app.

    Thanks to f14tomcat ...
    The registry edit DOES make shuffle happen.

    too Bad MS didn't include that in the settings app.

    That's probably because only 1 in 100,000 users worry about it. It must be on the last page of MS's to-do list.

    You could be right OR since 10 is a part of the phone and tablet ecosystem,
    have you seen any phones that shuffle wallpapers?

    To clarify... it is not, was not, will not be, a worry. ​Just a response to a query from a forum member.
