I have my desktop background set to a directory of images with automatic switching every ten minutes. Two minor feature requests with this:

  • 1.) The ability to initiate a background switch via shortcut -- a keyboard shortcut + context-menu shortcut fr om the taskbar tray icon, perhaps like "Switch background image".

  • 2.) The ability to jump directly to a background image's location on disk, similar to Task Manager's "Open file location" function.

    Sometimes there's an image I don't want in the background rotation anymore, making me trace through directories/images to find it. It'd be great to have a function that instantly jumps to the image file on disk + selects/highlights it.

    I realize this could be considered partially fulfilled with the option to show image location on the background itself, but this ruins the look of the image :)


These two options could even be inserted in the same context submenu together, something like "Desktop" or "Background" -> "Switch background" + "Jump to background image location".

An alternate possibility with this would be a background "blacklist", wh ere the user can click "Desktop Background" -> "Add current background to blacklist", which then removes it from the rotation without needing the user to manually move the background out of its directory.

Hello Steph,

Thanks for the post.

Did you try "Next slide" and "Open slide" desktop context menu items?
