Windows 7: .exe for Next desktop background?

.exe for Next desktop background?

I like to change my desktop background often. Seems a bit cumbersome to have to right click and select "Next desktop background" all the time though. I know, I know, a bit whiny. I am a developer though and I want everything faster.

Is there an .exe that this option calls, that I can attach to a shortcut on the desktop or something similar?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

is 10 seconds good and fast enough for you?
I meant between pic changing, without clicks and stuff?
