    Hi Michael,



    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for posting. We appreciate your interest in Windows 10.



    I understand the inconvenience that you are unable view the photos in slideshow as it repeats after few photos and need to know “How can I change this to show a continuous and non-repeating slideshow?”. We will help you to
    resolve this issue.



    Please let us know,


    • Where does the photos folder located?

    • Did you try to change the folder location and check?


    I suggest you to follow the below steps:

    Step 1: If the photos folder is located on the desktop, try to create another folder and copy all the content to the newly created folder and add this folder for slideshow and check.



    Step 2: Try to create new folder if different location and copy all the content to the newly created folder in different location and add this folder for slideshow and check.



    Hope it helps. Please perform the above methods and update the status of this issue, we will be happy to help you.

    Photos slideshow

    Hi Deepika

    First of all, thanks for taking the time to reply to my question. Much appreciated.

    The folder containing the photos is located on an external hard drive. I right click on one of the photos and am given a list of options from which to choose. I choose your app, Photos, and start a slideshow.
    However it plays just 30 items and then goes back to the first one and starts over. As you suggested, I created a new folder (in my C drive), copied some photos in there and then tried to play a slideshow using Photos. The same thing happened again, just 30
    items are played.

    I have also copied all my collection into Photos and played a slideshow directly from there. This works well and plays without repeating. However, as the options available in Photos are very limited, I would
    like to continue to play a slideshow using the items stored in the external hard drive. This worked perfectly with previous Windows (XP, 7, 8) but not with 10. Any other thoughts?

    Thanks in advance
    Regards

    Michael
