Windows 7: increase screen saver time

increase screen saver time

fellas when i use custom pics as a screen saver , the default options for the duration of each pic is given as: Slow Medium Fast.
can i edit the time in seconds for the display of the pics via some registry setting or something.

for instance, i would like to use My Pictures folder for the screen saver and have each pic display for say,60 seconds.(Remember in XP we had the slider bar but that has been done away with in 7)

Thankx for any help

I don't think it can be done without a third party app.
I found this though.

Welcome to the Seven Forums
I agree with Maguscreed it cannot be done.
Here is a free program that said it can do that.

Yeah, I looked around on your behalf a bit, and it really seems the timing is determined the same way the timing in the normal slideshow feature is determined. It's apparently coded into the app/service, and not set by a default registry value.

It's not about the Wallpaper, Maguscreed...that can be set to many different times as is.
It's about the screensaver. I wasn't able to find anything in the registry about how to change those defaults.

So if at all there might be a commercial app for that
