Modifying Desktop Background Slideshow Time Duration

I have my background set to 'Slideshow'. At the following :

Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Personalization > Desktop Background

... near the bottom is a provision to change the picture every so many units of time. I know this may seem a silly request but I was wanting to modify the available fixed time list (presets?) with my own units. How could this be done?

-thnx

No problem, I actually think it "should" be possible, if you are a coder, and delve into windows coding to find the right area, but beyond all but the most experienced, and not something many would desire, making it worthwhile
