Why does Slideshow not work on win 11

I have several virtual desktops. I set them all to slideshow but as soon as I move from one desktop to another the slideshow changed to show picture. This happened with the last but one update.

    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for your post. You can have the same preview layout for your lock screen and desktop background slideshow as long as the photos are saved on the same folder. To change the desktop background picture to slideshow, please follow these steps:

    • Open the Settings app.
    • Click on Personalization.
    • Under Background, choose Slideshow.
    • Click on Browse, and then navigate to your slideshow folder that you have created to specify the directory.
    • Set the time interval. Under Change picture every choose your time preference of between 1 minute and 1 day.

    After customizing the desktop background, you'll need to configure the lock screen slideshow settings too. Follow the steps given on this article and select the same slideshow folder:

    Personalize your lock screen.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Best Regards,

    Ian Xue
