Using pictures in multiple folders for background slide show theme.

I can't seem to figure out if there is a way to load pictures from two or more different folders to use in the same single desktop background configuration for one slide show. Some how, it worked for me once and only once but I haven't got it to work again.

-My suggestion for making it a little easier to figure out or even do is to simply add a check mark box saying "Include sub folders" and even a "Merge multiple  folders" option

Hi Detachi,

 All the pictures which you want to add to background slideshow should be located in the same folder.

For reference:

Make changes to your desktop background slide show

As such, I don’t think you can possibly configure pictures from two or more folders to create a single background slideshow.

Good suggestion though.
