    Windows Slideshow, is there a max number of images it cycles through?


    I have the windows slideshow that activates when my machine is locked. Is there a maximum number of images that it uses to cycle through?

    I have it pointing to my pictures folder, but it only seems to ever use stuff from several years ago, never anything new. I have a lot of images in that folder (over 9k at this point) and about 70% are jpgs that Slideshow can read, the rest are RAW files. I tested throwing a timelapse sequence in there, which was several hunderd jpg's of the same scene, figuring at some point I would see one of the images from that group, but it has been 3 months and still haven't seen one pop up on the lock screen. I have tried rebooting, changing the directory away and back again and rebooting. I always get the same images, none of the new ones.

    My WIndows version is build 1903, build 18362.1016

    Thanks,

    :)

    Windows 10 Slideshow - is there a limit to how many pictures it cycles through?

    I use the Windows Slideshow on my lock screen and I was wondering if there was an upper limit to how many pictures it uses to cycle through. I take a lot of images and they are all stored in my Pictures folder. When my slide show runs, it never seems
    to pull any of the more recent photos I have put in the folder. I see lots of repeats of the older stuff, but nothing recent. Is there an upper limit to how many images it uses in its pool to cycle through? I am wondering if it is indexing X number of images
    sorted by date and stopping.

    Photos slideshow

    Hi Michael,



    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for posting. We appreciate your interest in Windows 10.



    I understand the inconvenience that you are unable view the photos in slideshow as it repeats after few photos and need to know “How can I change this to show a continuous and non-repeating slideshow?”. We will help you to
    resolve this issue.



    Please let us know,


    • Where does the photos folder located?

    • Did you try to change the folder location and check?


    I suggest you to follow the below steps:

    Step 1: If the photos folder is located on the desktop, try to create another folder and copy all the content to the newly created folder and add this folder for slideshow and check.



    Step 2: Try to create new folder if different location and copy all the content to the newly created folder in different location and add this folder for slideshow and check.



    Hope it helps. Please perform the above methods and update the status of this issue, we will be happy to help you.
