In another thread (which I can’t find at the moment), someone mentioned that he has a program that randomly changes his desktop background. Anyone know of any like it?
I use dWall. It sucks the least out of the available options.
Program’s in English despite the French website. You’ll get your way around.
I really like Webshots - The copy I have is a few years old now so I’m not sure if the new version’s changed much, but the one I have is just great, a very small program that cycles the wallpaper. You can choose how often to change it, and also group backgrounds into categories which you can tick or untick whenever you want if you want a different sort of style.
It has other features, like daily wallpaper downloads and screensavers, but I have those disabled so I can’t really comment, I just use it for the desktop cycling.
I just open the Desktop and Screen Saver PrefsPane and tell it to select a random picture from a folder I specify and to change it every specified interval, and it does.
I wanted to say something like that too, but I was on an XP machine and couldn’t remember the name of the pref pane on my real computer.
Seriously, though, it should be that easy. I can’t believe I had to search and search and search for the one that I recommended above (back when I searched for it). Oh, there are plenty of “wallpaper” (stupid terminology) switchers for Windows, and can you believe that some of them are 30 bucks? Holey sheets.
