Windows 7: Themes Does Not Shuffle Through All Pictures Before Repeating

Themes Does Not Shuffle Through All Pictures Before Repeating

I am new here and please forgive me if this has been asked and solved elsewhere (Search couldn't find anything specifically relevant).

Problem: Themes doesn't go through all pictures selected before repeating pictures it has already shown.
I can't be the only person to notice this. So how do I configure Themes to shuffle through all pics before repeating any? This drives me nuts and I have done many searches for an answer that will solve this, to no avail. Any help (other than.. "gee Themes doesn't do that") would be greatly appreciated.

Hello HammerHeart, and welcome to Seven Forums.

See if having Shuffle unchecked may help for your desktop slideshow. Shuffle is for it to display images randomly, so it could show an already displayed image again before one that hasn't yet.

Hope this helps,

WHY? Why? WHY?

I have not come across a shuffle mode in any app that outputs every item in the target database before an item is repeated. What is so hard about coding these shuffle algorithms so that they won't do this???? I mean, like, after all these years no one has come up with a formula that will 'memorize' an item already output before it outputs it again? Really?!!!!

end-of-rant, sorry

I hear you. I guess when they say random, it's truly random.

Windows media centers isn't too bad,
It uses a Favorites pictures option and has shuffle.
I haven't noticed any issues ?
But I would see a feature like this having issues shuffling files in different folders though.
