Windows 7: Using ALL Windows wallpaper

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit (6.1, Build 7600)
Using ALL Windows wallpaper

Hello guys,

*I'll preface this by apologizing if this has been asked already. I couldn't find it though, as there is A LOT of info on this forum already! Please link me to a response if one has already been posted, thanks! :)

GREAT forum! I really like the new Windows wallpapers and found some additional themes on the Windows 7 site. I would like to incorporate these into my slide show but when I try to add them in Personalization, it will not let me. I can search to the folder they are in and have even put them in the Windows folder where the system wallpapers are located, but I can still only choose from the system papers. I have also tried to use the system papers and create a custom file and do it that way but STILL no luck that way either! Maybe there is something easy I'm missing? Can anyone show me how to do this?

Hey Stratman,
What I usually do to add more backgrounds to my current theme is right click and go to personalize and go to themes, click on Desktop Background, then open explorer and navigate to the folder that has the images I want and drag and drop adding them to the other backgrounds and save...hope this helps!

Put all the pics in folder that you want on the slide show and then right click one of them and select use as wallpaper and then go to personalize and select backgrounds and all your pics in that folder should be in there and then just select all and hit OK.
