    I suppose the only workaround would be to copy the images you want for the slideshow into your "C:\Users\(user-name)\Pictures" folder to see how it works.

    I'm actually pretty sure when I get to wiping this system for the first time and reloading, it will work fine,

    The idea was to combine shortcuts from all the different folders into one folder.

    I'm glad you eventually found a solution, but is it possible that some of the image files you want in the slideshow are not in a format that is recognized by Windows natively? Ie., were any of the images .psd (Photoshop) files or something similar?
