  1. Windows 10 Background Slideshow not working


    I am using a desktop computer and myy desktop background slideshow does not work. I am having the exact same problem as this person: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us...-working/de81fb3d-3c3f-4677-9762-caa1099d7f4f where if I click 'next background' nothing happens, but if I open settings then it suddenly changes. It remains stuck on that background until I close settings and reopen them again.


    I have checked the windows power settings as suggested in this thread, and the slideshow option is set to "available". One of the other fixes suggested in the thread was to save the current theme as the desktop backgrounds theme, and this didn't solve my problem either. I also tried refreshing the desktop, which does nothing either.

    :)

  3. Background slideshow not working


    I have a background slideshow in operation, inherited from Windows 7 when I changed to Windows 10. I know how to personalise the background, but the slideshow does not work when I select a folder other than the one I inherited, even when there are suitable background pictures in the folder. Obviously, I could just put pictures for my background into the one folder which does work, but I would like to be able to select any picture folder, as should work. Can anyone help?
    Cheers

  4. Windows 10 Background Slideshow not working

    Can i have the same preview layout like window 10 slideshow lock screen on window 10 slideshow desktop background ?

    Hi,

    You can have the same preview layout for your lock screen and desktop background slideshow as long as the photos are saved on the same folder. To change the desktop background picture to slideshow, please follow these steps:

    • Open the Settings app.
    • Click on Personalization.
    • Under Background, choose Slideshow.
    • Click on Browse, and then navigate to your slideshow folder that you have created to specify the directory.
    • Set the time interval. Under Change picture every choose your time preference of between 1 minute and 1 day.

    After customizing the desktop background, you'll need to configure the lock screen slideshow settings too. Follow the steps given on this article and select the same slideshow folder:

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
