Windows 7: Add another wallpaper folder?

Add another wallpaper folder?

I tried to add another wallpaper folder to the desktop slide-show but when I finished choosing the folder, it didn't recognize any wallpapers. Only if I copy these wallpapers to the wallpaper folder, the Windows would recognize them

Hello natri23.

I believe it's because you have to put a check (tic) mark beside all the pics you want to select and that doesn't happen when you add a folder to an existing file. But when I tried what you are asking about I just gave up and added the pics to the first file without further investigation. Sorry I don't have more of an answer for you; maybe someone else will be more useful.

Keep us informed; as I too am interested in the outcome.

Have a look at this. Slide show

The problems is just when adding the wallpapers, it opened an empty folder with "No items match your search" even when I had selected a folder with fully wallpapers inside.
