    If you wish to display a collection of pictures on the desktop, perform the same previously mentioned steps, but instead of selecting “Picture” in the Background drop-down menu, select the Slideshow option. After selecting slideshow, select the following (Windows IT Central, n.d.):

    1. Click the Browse button to select the folder with the images.
    2. Use the "Change picture every" drop-down menu to select how often the image will rotate.
    3. If the order of the images is not important, turn on the Shuffle toggle switch.
    4. Using the "Choose a fit" drop-down menu, select the option that best suits the images, including fill, stretch, center, span, etc.
