    Random function as used by Desktop personalisation


    Amongst the personalisation settings the desktop background can be set to Slideshow, a folder of images selected, and an interval for change set. It can also be set to Shuffle on/off. I assume this is to set whether the display image is selected at random (shuffle on) or sequentially from list of images (shuffle off).

    I have it set to select an image from a folder of images and to change it every minute. It have tried shuffle in both positions.

    The problem is that more often than not it selects the same image.

    I had the same issue with a screen saver. Again the random setting didn't work particularly well wit a distinct bias to one or two images.

    It seems Windows random function is not reliable. I have found a better app for the slide show (GPhoto) but can't solve the desktop issue.

    Using Windows 10 , latest update, using two VDUs.

    :)

  2. Delete personalised photo on desktop

    How do I delete the personalised photos from the desktop created in settings/accounts/your info? I created it but I cannot find anywhere that deletes these personalised photos.

    Thank you

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Random BSOD while browsing internet


    BitDefender is nothing special. mwac.sys causes BSODs anywhere.
    A tiny documentation can be found here: Solved Random BSODs - Windows 10 Forums
    In that very thread, the suggested action apparently worked.

    The storage and network filters of any third party antivirus can cause BSODs. Neither MBAM nor BitDefender is any special. For a regular antivirus, it may be shifted to an alternative; but MBAM has no alternative. So a clean install of the said program is the most feasible first step.
    As far as the first step is not failing, it is better to not think for the second step. Because the BSODs are not universal, failure at the first step is not universal; and success at the second step is also not universal.
    That is why I posted that my suggestion may work, or may not. Let us see where it goes.
