Desktop Background Slideshow settings removed? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Up until a few months ago I was using a slideshow with a number of pictures set to change picture every 10 seconds. This setting was hidden in Windows 10 but still accessible by using Run: control /name Microsoft.Personalization /page pageWallpaper

    This took you to a page where you could set the picture to change every 10 seconds as well as select and deselect specific pictures in your selected folder that should be included or excluded in the slideshow. This workaround is no longer possible as the above command takes you to the Windows 10 version of it. Here you can only select 1 minute as the fastest transition, and you can only select a folder (no longer able to deselect certain pictures). 

    According to WindowsCentral's comment section, it seems that after the Creators update this was changed.

    My question is: is it still possible through either editing it through the registry, or through some powershell command to have the background picture slideshow change picture every 10 seconds (or 30 seconds, or anything below 1 minute) as well as select/deselect specific pictures?

  • You need to post this in one of the Windows 10 forums found @ https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/home?category=Windows10ITPro

    This is a Windows 7 forum and Windows 10 has many, many differences!
