Windows 7: I do I select a folder with pictures to use as desktop background

I do I select a folder with pictures to use as desktop background


First post for some help at work!
I need to configure a pc so that it uses a folder with pictures in it (folder is located in a network drive) to loop trough the background. I can select a folder and select al the pictures in it, but if someone else copies some more photo's to that folder, they don't come up on the desktop background. I first have to select these photo's before they are added to the loop.
Does anyone have an idea how to do this so that someone else can change the pictures in the folder(network drive) and windows background loops through al the photo's in that map without having to do anything?

Thanks in advance!

Best regards,

Batch copy pictures from web addresses to a desktop folder
My vendor gave me 5000+ web addresses to pictures for products I want to list. My cart system wont allow me to bulk load these using these addresses. I can bulk load them if they are in a folder. Is there a way to batch open and copy them from the addresses to a file folder on my desktop?
