    Truly random screen savers


    I use the Firehand Ember screen saver (company no longer exists sadly as it still my favourite photo viewer so I can't ask them) and it draw images from my database of photos - thousands of them! It means that we occasionally get treated to slide shows of photos we haven't looked at for years.

    The problem however is that the selection is not truly random. It seems to have a preference for certain photos or groups of photos, so the random function is not truly random.

    Is there a better screen saver or alternatively a way of ensuring it is random.

    :)
     

  2. Shuffle Screen Saver pictures

    I have my Windows 10 screen saver set to display random photos, which it does, but always starts from the first few folders, i.e. those beginning with A-C, so I always end up seeing the same photos every time the screen saver comes on. This wasn't the case
    with the previous version of Windows I used, which did seem to display photos in truly random order. Any suggestions or is this just a feature of Windows 10?

    Hi,

    I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if this helps:

    • Open Screen Saver Settings by clicking on the start button and entering
      Screen saver in the search box.
    • Under Screen saver, tap or click
      Photos
      .
    • To change one or more of the screen saver settings, tap or click
      Settings
      , and then do one or more of the following:
    • To change the speed of the slide show, tap or click the list next to
      Slide show speed
      (it will give three options Slow, Medium and Fast) select accordingly.
    • If you want the photos to appear in a random order, select the
      Shuffle pictures
      check box.
    • Tap or click Save to save the setting changes you made. Then tap or click
      OK in the Screen Saver Settings
      dialog box.
