Increase the speed of slideshow under Windows 7

October 2016


I'd like to change the speed at which the desktop background is changed under Windows 7


  • Open the registry:
  • Start > Run > regedit
  • In the registry go to:
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Control Panel \ Personalization \ Desktop Slideshow
  • The value assigned to "Interval" should be modified.
  • By double clicking on it there is a window that appears.
  • Select Decimal and set the time (in milliseconds).
  • For a 10 seconds delay set it to 10000.
