Windows 7: how do i modify desktop background transition change time

how do i modify desktop background transition change time

I'm trying to change the time the transition takes to happen - i DO NOT want to make it cycle through the pictures faster, i want it to change from one to another instantly, as currently there's a fade out/in thing going on which for various reasons i want to get rid of.

Any ideas?

Welcome to the Seven Forums

The only way to do that is use the Windows Classic theme, not Aero or Basic.

Hello Mauvai, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you checked the Turn off all unnecceassary animations box in the Ease of Access Center, or uncheck the Animate controls and elements inside windows option in the Visual Effects settings, then this will also remove the fade effect between wallpapers in the desktop slideshow.

Hope this helps, :)
