Turn Your Desktop into a Slideshow with Windows

Do you get bored of your background quickly or change it based on your mood periodically throughout the day? This week I am going to show you the desktop slideshow feature in Windows that will automatically change the wallpaper at different time intervals.

The Desktop Slideshow 

To create your slideshow right-click on the desktop and click Properties.

Turn Your Desktop into a Slideshow with Windows
Click on Desktop Background located at the bottom of the window.

You can now change and add a selection of photos, pictures, logos. You need to hold down the Ctrl button on the keyboard and select each picture you would like to show on the desktop.

Once you have picked the backgrounds you want you need to choose the amount of time between changes, you can select from 10 seconds all the way up to a full day. Click the box next to Shuffle to vary them up even more.

After you’ve enabled this setting you’ll notice it says Slide Show under Desktop Background.

The other way round this is to simply head into the folder with all of your pictures, wallpapers, or photos, select the ones you want and use “Set as desktop background” from the right-click menu.
