Prioritize New Pictures For "Desktop Background Slideshow"


New Member

So I have my Desktop to load a random picture from a folder of ~3,000 images every minute. I tend to add new pictures to this folder from time to time (hence the reason why there's so many images in there right now). I am wondering if there's an advanced option that allows Windows to prioritize loading a random image with a more recent Date Modified detail. So for example, I will list File Names and the Date Modified detail next to them:

1.jpg (3/18/2016)
2.jpg (2/29/2016)
3.jpg (1/1/2016)
4.jpg (9/26/2013)
5.jpg (8/8/2012)
6.jpg (7/7/2007)

So in this example, Windows would most likely show the first 3 pictures randomly, before showing the last 3.
(Like so: 2, 1, 3, 4, 6, 5)

Do you understand what I'm saying here? I hope you see what I mean.
