Activating the Wallpaper Slideshow in Windows 10 Desktop

The background slideshow feature on Windows desktop was firstly introduced when Windows 7 launched. This feature enables the users to configure the Windows to be able to present the wallpaper on desktop automatically via options that the user chooses including the time laps of the slideshows themselves.

In short, you can choose the wallpapers as many as you want and activate those wallpapers in slideshow so that Windows will automatically transform the display in every 10 minutes or even every day. Because of this slideshow feature, now you don’t need to configure it regularly in order to get a different wallpaper every time you use the PC.

The background slideshow feature is actually applied in Windows 10 too, but this feature can be said to be “hidden” because the classic personalization windows has been changed by Microsoft. In this article, I can say that, on Windows 10, this configuration can be found via Settings app.
