Windows 7: Windows 7 Wallpaper Fade Effect is not working.

21 Feb 2014   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Windows 7 Wallpaper Fade Effect is not working.

So, okay,

I have unchecked all of the "Turn off all unnecessary animations (when possible)" in the Ease of Access Center as well as checked all settings under the "Visual Effects" tab in the "Performance Options" and I still am left with images that just snap to one another rather than fade.

My PC should have absolutely ZERO problem managing this function. I have an I7-3770k processor, 8gb of ram, and an NVidia GTX 780.

Is there another setting that I am missing? Please inform.

Thank you very much!

Welcome to Seven Forums Puddson.

Usually the ease of access, or the Animate controls and elements inside windows setting in performance is the issue.

Try this, navigate to C:\Users\(Your user name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\


Delete the TranscodedWallpaper.jpg and rename slideshow.ini to slideshow.ini.bak

Reboot and try again. A Guy
