How to make a shortcut to run a photo slideshow of preferred folder?

(I'm talking about a screensaver would act like a photo slideshow)

What I have now is a shortcut on desktop with this path:
"C:\Windows\System32\PhotoScreensaver.scr"
(I can select preferred folder by configure in Right click.)

I found better types of screensavers/slideshowes, but I don't know how to run them from commad-line/shortcut.

There are:
1. Slideshow of Windows Explorer. A button on bar avavilavle only when the follder is a Photos Folder.
See your pictures as a slide show - Microsoft Windows Help

2. My favorite: Slideshow of Windows Live Gallery. ("C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Live\Photo Gallery\WLXPhotoGallery.exe")

Does someone know if there are command line parameters or a script can be done?

Thanks in advance.
