Hello Ace,

Double check using the tutorial below to help make sure that you have the desktop slideshow setup properly by checking the box of more than one image you wanted to select.

Desktop Slideshow

If you do have it like in the tutorial above and still do not have Next desktop background in the Desktop context menu, then see if the tutorial below may be able to help restore it.

Next Desktop Background - Add or Remove from Desktop Context Menu

If none of the above helps, then please post back with screenshots of anything that is different for you than what's in the tutorials.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

but by trial and error i have uninstalled a software named active desktop calender and that has solved the problem
