I like the new slideshow capability in Windows 7, but I did notice a strange behavior:
- If I have a slideshow set up as the theme, I cannot make the desktop icons disappear using right-click->view->show desktop icons to turn that flag off. It
does deactivate the desktop icons and it is like they aren't there, and yet they are.
If I switch it back to a single background to turn off the slideshow, then the capability returns to make the desktop icons disappear and reappear as they are supposed to.
If I use a 3rd party wallpaper changer like Steve Murphy's AWC, then I get a wallpaper changer plus the "show desktop icons" flag works correctly as well.
