Windows 7: Photos Slide Show Screen Saver

Photos Slide Show Screen Saver

I'm trying to change my screen saver to "my photos" slide show. I have gone to my control panel and found where to change the screen saver to photos, selected "my pictures" however only 2 pictures repeat over and over. I probably have over 100 photos and don't understand why it's not showing all of them. I've done it in both XP and Vista and it was so easy...what could I be doing wrong? Help!

Try to approach it from Windows Live Photo Gallery > File. Maybe you have more luck.

All the photos have to be in 1 folder and all need to be checked.

All of my pictures are in "my pictures" folder with subfolders of pictures. If I choose the slide show from "my pictures" , won't it pull all of them? Do you mean that I have to create a separate folder that contains ALL of my pictures to choose for my slide show? What do you mean by all need to be checked? I never saw where that was an option.

Just put them all into 1 (one) folder. Forget the "check" part. It sometimes uses subfolders and sometimes it does not (my observation).

I use FlekDev PhotoSlideShow. It automatically includes all new pictures in MyPictures as they are added. And if I want to exclude some of them I can do it while running, and it never shows up in the slide show again.
