  3. Desktop Background Slideshow in Windows 10

    I have found that you cannot use the downloaded themes and change them except for the overall background color.

    I use my own pictures through settings-personalization-background-slideshow, there I choose my picture folder. Then I choose a background color in "colors". Close the settings, go back again, settings-personalization, and open themes-theme settings. There
    the slideshow or theme with my pictures including the background color of my choice is listed as unsaved theme. Save it.

    Changing other things such as duration of slide display, I think the only way so far is what someone here has suggested: Put cursor on a theme, then press Windows Key + R, and type control /name Microsoft.Personalization /page pageWallpaper.

    It's all a bit complicated

    3. Links to a Photo Album: Personalize > Background > Slideshow displays "No items match your search." when selecting a folder containing your pictures.

    Update Note: The latest Windows 10 update (November 2015) has corrected most of the issues mentioned in this post. can i back up to look at a prior background picture in a theme slideshow? :) Review your Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update for more information.

    The slides from your folder should appear immediately as your background. Review and select the available options for changing the picture time, shuffle and choose a fit.

    1. Update Settings: Return to Settings >Personalization > Select "Themes... Theme Settings"

    2. You should see your theme available under the "My Themes" group.

    3. Click the "Unsaved Theme" then save it with a new theme name.
