    Set Desktop Background to User desired JPG photo


    I'm running a Dell Desktop with Windows 10 Home 64-bit, Version 2004 (OS Build 19041.508) and seem not to be able to select a photo of my choosing as a desktop background photo.

    Within C:\Windows\Web folder as I navigate there from Personalize (Right Click on desktop) I select photo as the background type and navigate to the appropriate folder containing my desired background. I select that photo which returns me to the Personalize window and I seem to hit a brick wall. No "select" icon and when I exit it reverts to "Colors" checked as background.

    Perhaps some maintenance program or virus program is inhibiting this.

    :)

    Windows 10 Desktop background photo not changing


    Setup - two monitors. Nvidia Quatro graphic card

    Desktop background problem
    I have set Personalisation - Desktop Background - Slideshow - Set Location to a Photo folder to use Photos - Change every minute - Shuffle Off (tried On as well but makes no difference) - Fit set to Fit.

    Problem is that the images never change, though they are different ones on the two monitors.

    I have tried various permutations of the above without any success. Which folder of photos I use doesn't make any difference to the situation - same two photos displayed.

    My wife's laptop which is setup in the same way seems to have a similar but not identical problem. hers changes but only selects from 4 photos despite more being available in the chosen folder.

    Suggestions appreciated!

  3. Photos app hogging resources in background

    Ian, this suggestion was posted on my other thread:

    We understand that not all of users are using the Photos app on Windows 10, if not very often. If you don't want this app to be running on background when not in use, there is a way you can turn this
    off. Kindly follow the steps provided below:


    • In Cortana, type Privacy Settings
      and press Enter.
    • Look for Background apps.
    • Look for Photos in the list.
    • Flip the switch to Off.
    • Restart your computer.

    After you restart your computer, you can check if the Photos app is still running in background. You can use these steps to turn off any running background applications as it is not limited to Photos
    app alone. In this way, you can conserve a lot of power and process allowance.


    I just followed these instructions, and now have to wait to see if it works. I'm hoping it solves your problem, too!

    Hi,

    Thank you for your response.

    Apologize for delay in reply.

    As a workaround, I suggest you to change the desktop background/ remove the desktop background and check.

    I suggest you to create a new user account and check if it fixes the issue. Refer to the steps below to create a new User Account:

    • Go to Settings.
    • Choose Accounts and then select Other User Accounts towards the left.
    • Select Add an Account.
    • Enter a user name and hit Next.
    • Click on Finish.
    • Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    • Check if issue persists.

    Please reply to us with the status of the issue.

    Thanks.
