I realized that if you put the computer to sleep, it would rapidly cycle through several wallpapers within a few minutes once you wake the computer up.

Hello Brink,

Thank you for this cool tutorial ;-)

I use Windows Home Premium, and as far as I can see, I don't need to unlock anything to get the slideshow working, is this correct?

Have a nice day, and keep writing the cool tutorials!

Best regards,

Hello zx81,

Nope, it should work right out of the box for the Home Premium edition as well.

I think the unlocking step was necessary for the RC or beta versions, correct?

Hello Satchmo,

To be honest I do not remember having to unlock anything for it to work in the early pre-release builds of Windows 7, but I may be mistaken.

I don't have the option ''Change picture every...'' that you mention in step 7 and that you can see in the picture in step 3.

Any of you guys know what i can do to activate that option ?

I can change between wallpaper manually (right click on desktop)

I have Windows 7 Home Premium edition

thanks

I know it is supposed to be there but for some reason, it isn't. The only option i have is the picture position. I don't have any other options.

I'm looking for a way to make the option available

Do you have the option to put a check-mark on several different pictures?

Then the Change picture every;


becomes available
