  1. Use subfolders for background in Windows 11


    I would suggest that every Windows user with more than 100 stored images organizes their images in subfolders. Why is it so difficult to support subfolders for background images? This requirement has existed for several years, see among others https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/use-subfolders-for-background-in-windows-10/d5fc2473-a8d4-4e04-919c-61ea480681b1A good workaround was in the past the usage of kind:=picture in the search query, see https://www.winhelponline.com/blog/windows-10-desktop-background-slideshow-not-seeing-subfolders-library/But with the Windows 11 update

    :)

  2. Use subfolders for background in Windows 10

    I like the idea of changing my background once per day, and set the "Background" feature to do a random slideshow which uses the "Photos" folder, with the shuffle option checked. However, I keep nearly all of my photos in a number of subfolders in my "Photos"
    folder. I would like to have the background feature do a random slideshow using all of the photos in my "Photos" folder, INCLUDING all of the photos (about 99.9% of them) in the various subfolders, and not just the handful of photos in the top-level "Photos"
    folder. Can this be done? If not, then it needs to be updated, for it's a pretty useless feature as it is.

    Thanks.
