Windows 7: Desktop Slideshow - Shuffle Images in Multiple Folders

02 Feb 2010   #10

Windows 7 Ultimate

Personally, I don't know what causes the error but since then I've had three formats. Two prior to this one had the same issue. Most recently I tried to change the folders by right clicking them inside the explorer library on the left side and change location that way.

Slideshow vs. Wallpaper?

I have only been using Windows 7 for a few weeks. I don't understand what the difference is between setting the desktop wallpaper to change at a specified interval, versus creating a slideshow that changes the wallpaper at a specified interval? They both change the desktop background using a selected folder(s), right?

Is it possible to change shuffle sequence in Desktop slideshow?
I have my desktop slideshow pointed to a folder of roughly 500 odd images & it's set on a 15 sec shuffle sequence. However, what I'm finding rather regularly is that quite often it will repeat an image shown maybe 5 or 6 previously, and sometimes do that twice within 5 mins, as I'm often sitting...
Desktop Slideshow Theme stopped switching images
That basically says it all. When I installed Win7 Home Premium 32 bit I installed some desktop themes with images that switched. Cool. After a while I downloaded some picktures and created my own. I have them set to switch every 15 minutes. THe past few weeks, I noticed that they were no longer...
