As you know, the desktop slideshow feature is missing in Windows 7 Starter. There is no option to change wallpaper automatically or even in manual mode using standard system option. StarterDesktopSlideShow comes to solve this issue.

It can:
  • Change wallpaper on timer

  • Change wallpaper on StarterDesktopSlideShow start

  • Change wallpaper by global hotkey

  • Autostart after users logon

  • Disable slideshow when on battery

  • Check your system tray after apllication start. You will find StarterDesktopSlideShow there.
  • Only Windows 7 Starter is supported. Other editions is not supported.
  • StarterDesktopSlideShow not works on limited accounts. Sorry, we have no solution at this moment.
  • Do not disable task scheduler because StarterDesktopSlideShow uses task scheduler to suppress UAC dialogs.
    After changing wallpaper to non-default you will not able to change screensaver. Apply default wallpaper from context menu of StarterDesktopSlideShow's tray icon.

    Just trying this for the first time, and it seems to do exactly what it says it will do, and exactly what I want it to do. Thank you.

    There are a few enhancements that would make this even better, for me. (They may already be in the program, but I haven't found them yet!).

    First, I would like to be able to use all the pictures in a directory/folder. Adding pictures one-by-one, or by a mass import, is very slow. So, "add folder" would be good.

    Then, it would be even better if the program could monitor that directory to pick up any files added or removed to the directory.

    Next, when opening the Configuration, thumbnails of all the pictures are loaded. As with the initial load, this takes a long time if there are a lot of pictures - I have a large set of over 4000 pictures. Would it not be quicker to have a database (or index?) so that the load process is quicker?

    Thanks again for this program. Seems very good.
