Windows 7: How to speed up change wallpaper feature?

Your absolutely the grimmest! Works great. Freakin' annoying, though.

I do have an application for it, however. My baby girl loves watching the changing pix. By going this fast, I can destroy her attention span without ever having to expose her to television.

I was so dreading Barney and 'Tubbies. You have saved the day!

Thanks Ant, it was driving me nuts too, it's a shame there are no transition effects, I think that would make it less annoying, but for OP he would probably prefer it this way as all his images only change by a small amount.

Hey man, just got this thing to work on Windows 10, so maybe I could help you a bit.

Install this: Como habilitar los gadgets de escritorio en Windows 10

It's in Spanish, but you can translate it or something. After you install that thing you should be able to install gadgets on your system. Now that I think of it, maybe it won't work on Windows 8, or maybe you don't even need it, I don't really know. But yeah. After installing it, simply download the gadget provided earlier in the thread, and run it. That should be it.

Cheers, and good luck

Firefox Speed Dial Wallpaper
Somewhere, I thought that I saw an option to save an image to use as wallpaper on FF's Speed Dial window, but if I did, it is lost to me now. I like FF's Speed Dial quite well, except that the white background is to glaring for me. Is it possible to change this?
