Hi,

I was just wondering is there anyway that i can set my desktop background so it changes the picture automatically like every 10seconds or show,

something like a slide show but for your background

Thanks in advance for all your help

There sure is. Wimpwall.

Best of all, it's free.

It only changes the wallpaper on boot, though.


This one, which I used to use, does it at set intervals of your choice, if that's what floats your boat/

http://www.wallpaperchanger.de/

This, too, is free. (But a lot more fiddly)

Although neither say they're Vista Compatible, they are.

How perfectly odd. I just installed it, here. It worked perfectly.

There are loads of similar programs about, though. Might be worth you looking here:

I'll have a ferret around, myself.

Quite a few...

Not many seem to mention Vista, though. Not that I can blame them... :D
