Create a Lock Screen Slideshow in Windows 8
Edited by Lukward Thomason, Amanda, Eng
Hi, you're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to create a lock screen slideshow on Windows 8 computers.
Move the mouse cursor to either the upper-right corner of the screen, or lower-right corner of the screen.
When we do this, a menu will pop out.
Click "Change PC settings".
This will open the "PC settings" menu.
Find "Lock screen".
On the right side of the screen, there are personalization options represented by pictures. The first one is "Lock screen". Click "Lock screen" and it will open "Lock screen preview".
At the bottom, find the slider icon beneath the words "Play a slide show on the lock screen".
That's exactly what we need to turn on.
Click on the slider.
It will fill up with blue, and say "On". Now, if we lock our screen, a slide show will begin. We can also tweak some extra features of the slide show.
Now we have the ability to add pictures, or add a folder of pictures. Also, we will be able to include Camera Roll folders from the PC and SkyDrive. We can select whether to only use pictures that will fit best on the screen. We can decide whether or not to play the slide show when we're using battery power. We can also toggle "When my PC is inactive, show the lock screen instead of turning off the screen".
Set each slider to "On" or "Off" depending on preference.
The last option is "Turn off screen after slide show has played for" and it's currently set to "Don't turn off".
Click the arrow next to "Don't turn off" to change this setting.
Click on a time to set how long the slide show will play before the screen turns off automatically.
We have the ability to set it to "30 minutes", "1 hour", "3 hours" or again, "Don't turn off". We will keep it on "Don't turn off". Once everything is set up, let's go to desktop.
Move the mouse cursor to the upper-left corner of the screen and click there.
There we go.
This concludes our tutorial on how to create a lock screen slideshow on Windows 8 computers.
