Using wallpapers from different countries to make....

Ok so you know how when you choose which pictures to put in your desktop slideshow they have different countries, I believe they have US, Canada, Australia, UK and that's it. Well what if I want one picture from the US collection and one from the UK one in my desktop slideshow, how do I do that, it's not letting me, it seems as if I gotta stick with one country only.

Have you tried to make a new folder like "My Wallpapers"

Then copy each pic you want into that folder & set that folder as the default for your slideshow.

Just find the theme you want the pic from, apply it (in the personalization menu) and open the 'Desktop background' then drag the image you want in your slideshow to your desktop (from the window)

NOTE: This will move that picture from the regional theme.

Right click on desktop > personalize > bottom right in "My Themes" go to "Get more themes online". There you get more than you can possibly use.

Make sure you set folder options to view hidden files/folders and untick hide protected operating system files. Then navigate to Windows\Globalization\MCT
Double click each theme to activate and add to themes library
