When I upgraded to windows 10, all the icon images of my pictures are now a white slide with a blue mountain-like thing on it. I can't tell what I am looking at without opening them up. I use to be able to know what they all were before I opened them.
I don't know if I changed a setting or what but I can't get Windows to show me the Lock Screen. I have it like this. I put it in Slideshow with a custom folder where I keep all my wallpapers. is a slideshow lockscreen settings in one side, a normal savescreen setting in another. If I had to set my screen to turn off after a certain time or not. I just want the frickin lockscreen to start whenever, let's say, 30 min have passed. Only thing I get it's my screen turned off.
Just installed Windows 10 on my primary laptop and the lock screen is a solid blue (if I change my theme color, the lock screen changes too). However, I have Windows Spotlight turned on. I've tried setting a static picture or slideshow as the background. I also confirmed that the files needed for Windows Spotlight are indeed downloaded onto my computer. It just refuses to change.It's worth noting that on my secondary computer with Windows Insider builds, I have, and have been having, the same problem.
how to show the preview of selected pictures in the bottom of explorer in windows 10 like as windows 7? URL... How i can show the selected picture preview on the bottom of explorer in windows 10 like as windows 7
So I used a AWESOME custom picture for my lockscreen. I look at it so much, I realized I wanted it as my desktop. Only one problem....I cant find the damn picture! Where I put it on my computer. Shouldn't windows be maintaining a copy of the file somewhere? WHAT CAN I DO?
I recently got a new gaming laptop and it's been working like a charm, especially since I upgraded it to 10. I am having a problem with my libraries however - this laptop essentially has 3 drives; the (C:) SSD for OS and a few games, and two other normal drives (D: E:) ... one for my games, the other for documents and such.
Due to this, whenever I am in the file explorer and need the quick access to get to say, music, it goes directly the the file on the C: drive rather than where my music folder is actually at, and how to actually change it. My save location was changed to this drive, as well as manually going into the libraries folder in %appdata% and changing the settings to my E: drive, but this hasn't changed anything. This is both under quick access (which can be changed with the pins I believe), but also the drop-down for This PC. Right-clicking these folders for properties does show the folders under C:User[Name], but no way to change.
I have many folders with photos and want to run a slideshow of all of them but when I choose 'Pictures' Windows 10 will not show anything. I have to pick one folder. That folder will run nicely, but I would like to include ALL folders.
It used to be in Personalization under themes. It permitted you to open the current theme and edit (add or remove pictures) from the theme. The function seems to have been left out in Windows 10, and was available in previous Windows versions.
I'll try to use a folder with pictures as screensaver - which I had in WINXP and WIN7. But I receive a message, that the folder can't be used because it's not in the right place. Where should I store this folder to work as screensaver in WIN10?
On my desktop themes, I use pictures in a folder. In Windows 7 and 8, I was able to randomize these pictures, but I have not found such a feature in Windows 10. Did they take that feature out, or am I just missing it?
Basically I've been doing some serious customisation to my media folders.. I've arranged everything where I want them from movies to TV and animated TV. I've even go as far as to put artwork on all folders.. For example in my marvel folder I've got an Marvel Cinamatic universe logo set and inside all the films have the did covers set.
I've been adding this artwork by right clicking the folders the films are inside. Going to customisation tab and selecting older pictures, which I then set a picture I've saved of the film cover..
My issue is that 2 times now I've gone through setting all this up to look nice and randomly when I restart the computer most of the artwork disappears from the folder and it goes back to the Windows default folder picture with just the media logo inside it..
Why this keeps happening and how I would stop it from forgetting the picture I've set up? It's really annoying having to set it all back up again and again for each individual folder and so time consuming!!
I've just 'upgraded' to Windows 10 from Windows 7.
I've noticed that file extensions are not shown when I display the files in a folder. For example I have a folder containing html files, and all that appears is e.g. Chapter00 when it should show Chapter00.html, ebook shows when it should show ebook.css, content shows when it should show content.opf, and Jane Eyre shows when it should show Jane Eyre.epub. Strangely enough toc.ncx shows as it should.
I've been through all the settings folders I can think of. How do I make Windows 10 show the file extensions as they were shown in Windows 7?
Is there a mod or something out there (or a registry edit maybe?) that will make the profile pictures for accounts square instead of circular, and use a transparent background? I have a custom image I'd like to use, but it gets rendered with a black background and parts get cut off by the circle.
I'm a bit confused about the terminology of background pictures, themes and Spotlight picture. When the computer hasn't been used for a specified time, my screen savers start. If I go back to the computer and move the mouse my screensaver goes away and another Windows picture fills up the desktop. I believe this is called the Spotlight but I could be wrong.
This Windows picture used to change. Since I did a clean install of Windows 10 this picture does not change. How do I get it to change? I used to see several different pictures in random order.
As title says, how do I change the settings in a Theme, desktop picture seems to change every 15 minutes, can I change this in the settings somewhere so it changes every 5 minutes or is it just through the registry like in Windows 7 ?
