If you are running Windows 7 or a newer operating system you probably know that you have lots of personalization options that were not included in previous versions of the OS.
Next to the easy installation of themes for personalization come options to select photos or images that the system can automatically switch between so that you always see fresh wallpapers on your system.
You can select custom background images the following way:
- Right-click on a blank space on the desktop and select personalize from the context menu.
- Locate the desktop background link at the bottom bar and click on it.
- Select one of the available picture locations, or browse for a new folder to select all images in that folder.
You can add custom folders to the picture location menu this way that will remain available there for selection. What you do not get is an option to change how images are grouped in the folder or an option to remove previously used folders from the selection menu. And that is exactly what Desktop Background Tuner provides you with.
You can start the program right after download and extraction on the system.
The interface displays the existing wallpaper groups which you can remove from Windows if you want. More interesting than that is the option to add your own group of wallpapers to Windows this way. A click on the add group button creates a new group which allows you to add folders with wallpapers or photos to it.
You will then notice that these photo folders are automatically available under the picture locations selection menu in the desktop background personalization menu.
What more? You can also delete the locations cache to remove all existing custom folders from the selection again, which you may want to do if it gets to crowded there, or if you need to remove a folder from there again.
