    On that I would like to have a slideshow showing pictures of my grandkids : .

  3. Desktop Slideshow not working?


    Oddly enough it seemed to work before with the default picture set, but when I tried to set it to a folder in my OneDrive it doesn't switch over, and not even any other folder works. Slideshow lists two folders (pictures, OneDrive desktop) but they are both greyed out and unclickable.

    Help? Thanks.

  4. Desktop Slideshow with a backround picture

    Can i have the same preview layout like window 10 slideshow lock screen on window 10 slideshow desktop background ?

    Hi,

    You can have the same preview layout for your lock screen and desktop background slideshow as long as the photos are saved on the same folder. To change the desktop background picture to slideshow, please follow these steps:

    • Open the Settings app.
    • Click on Personalization.
    • Under Background, choose Slideshow.
    • Click on Browse, and then navigate to your slideshow folder that you have created to specify the directory.
    • Set the time interval. Under Change picture every choose your time preference of between 1 minute and 1 day.

    After customizing the desktop background, you'll need to configure the lock screen slideshow settings too. Follow the steps given on this article and select the same slideshow folder:

    Personalize your lock screen
    .

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
