Synopsis

How to Change Your Desktop Background and Slide Show in Windows 8 and 8.1

information   Information
Your desktop background can be a different picture set for each specific monitor, a single picture set for all monitors, or a slide show playing selected pictures randomly on all monitors.

This tutorial will show you how to set images of your choice as your desktop background wallpaper or slide show in Windows 8, Windows RT, Windows 8.1,and Windows RT 8.1.

Note   Note
Using a picture that is the same size as the monitor(s) screen resolution will give you the best looking results.

If you have multiple monitors in a row, then using a widescreen picture that is close to the combined screen resolutions of the monitors will give you the best looking results. For example, a 3840 x 1200 widescreen picture looks great as one image across three 1920 x 1080 monitors using Fill. Your results may vary.


The default folder for Windows 8 wallpapers is located at: C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper\Windows


The hidden cache folder that stores a copy of the current desktop background image is located at:

%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\CachedFiles

If you are using a Microsoft account and have the Personalize setting turned on to sync, then the desktop background you currently have set will also be displayed on any PC that you sign in to with the same Microsoft account. The folder that contains this image on your PC is located below instead of the folder above:

%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\RoamedThemeFiles\DesktopBackground

Thanks for this great tutorial!!

Do you know if it is possible when using the slideshow function to force that the same wallpaper is shown on each screen when using multiple monitors.

I tried searching the internet and the only thing i can find is how glad people are that there's a new feature that Windows 8 is showing a different wallpaper on each monitor.

I only prefer the same wallpaper on each monitor.

Hopefully you or someone else can help me out.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Wienen, and welcome to Eight Forums.

So far, I don't know of a way to not have the slideshow display a different wallpaper on each monitor when you have more than one monitor. :(

Hello

I would like to set up slides show as background.
My Pictures folder contain tens of orginized folders and subfolders with pictures.
It is well described in tutorial how to set up slides show from content of one folder (i.e choose all pictures inside folder).

Question is: How to choose all pictures in all folders.

I really appreciate your help.

Cheers

Alex

Hello Alex, and welcome to Eight Forums.

You could select your Pictures library to have all images from all included folders available for the slide show.


Hope this helps, :)

Hello xraiderv1,

Sure, you can have your images saved where you like. It's the same as it was in Windows 7 with this. :)

446 out of 446...maybe that's not the issue. After actually counting them I guess the actual problem is that they are all not being included in the slideshow, I have it shuffled and it seems to repeat or favor some pics and excludes others. I will try unticking shuffle and see if it cycles all 446.

Hi there,

I have a friend who runs Win8 that asked me if there was a way to set a schedule for different folders to run as slide shows on different days of the week.

Such as folder 1 on Monday, folder 2 on Tuesday, etc........

Is this possible or maybe a program or tweak of some kind that can achieve this?

Thank you,

Donna :)

Hello Donna, and welcome to Eight Forums.

You could include several folders of images in the slide show if you select a library with the folders included to have them all shuffle. However, you are not able to schedule different folders unless you select different folders manually.

I'm not aware of any program that has that option so far. :(

Hello Brink,

Thank you for the welcome! :D

I didn't think it was possible even with the Windows Task Scheduler (which was her argument) since Windows can't differentiate the days of the week.

Thank you kindly!

Donna :)
