This tutorial details how to play a slide show on lock screen in Windows 10. Being its natural successor, Windows 10 carries forward a number of features introduced by Windows 8, polishing them even further. One of the most important of these features is enhanced support for modern UI apps. In addition to that, the entire Operating System itself presents a coherent integration of both traditional and modern style elements.

One such feature is the lock screen, that is displayed before the login screen. As I’ve explained in one of my previous articles, the lock screen can display useful information such as temperature, unread emails, and other such notifications. You can also use a custom image to be used as a lock screen background.

But did you know that you can play a slide show of favorite images on the Windows 10 lock screen, just in case one image isn’t enough? Sounds interesting? Let’s see how you can play a slide show on lock screen in Windows 10.

Having the lock screen in Windows 10 display a slide show of favorite images is a pretty simple task. The only requirement is that the images to be used for the slide show must be in the same folder. You can even use the images in the “Camera Roll” folder on the PC and OneDrive. Here’s a step by step tutorial, illustrating how to get things started:

Step 1: Open the modern Settings app, and click on  the Personalization sub-category.
