Hello. I have a question to ask.

How do I customize or more specifically, change the timing interval or cycle period (the number of seconds each image displays) the Windows 7's native slide show when activated or run through the Windows 7's command bar?

I am wondering if there is:

1. Some Windows native slide show program graphic user interface (GUI) window of sorts where settings such as the length of time an image cycles is available to change?  

...and/or...

2. Some Windows system registry hack(s) and tweak(s) in possible combination with Windows system directories hack(s) or tweak(s) where the length of time an image cycles is available to modify?

NOTE: The reason why I state "...and/or..." between questions (1.) and (2.) above is that I WOULD REALLY LKE TO KNOW *BOTH* if it each one is possible.

Please provide your own detailed facts, suggestions, hints, and tips; and/or the best possible well written, detailed and documented website links that SPECIFICALLY describe this process in DETAIL!

DO NOT USE LMGTFY.com or similar-like web links in your reply. I consider its use very unprofessional for EE experts. If you do, you will not get acknowledged and receive no credit.

Please reply.

Thank you!

Using Windows Slideshow.

if you right-click during the slide-show, you can choose between slow, medium and fast.

i don't think you can alter the registry for this setting.

Go to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Photo Viewer\Slideshow

Over there there is the speed setting but i'm afraid that only 3 speeds are allowed. (0,1,2).

@ activematx & _3mp3ror_:

Hello. Nice to meet you both! Thank you both for your comments.

I want to say that each one of you answered this question fairly from both my perspectives I asked in my initial question above.

Therefore your answers are workable and are indeed answers with solutions. I never thought of right clicking on the Windows Slide Show to access settings and features. I do now. I also see the system registry has preset or distinct settings and not a specific time interval that I desire to set it to.

At this time, this question is closed since it has been complete and satisfactorily answered with solutions.

Thank you both for being so prompt and fast with answers and solutions!

Next I will award points and solution titles...

Hello. Like I said in my previous post, each of you answered my question with solutions from both my perspectives; therefore both of you will get awarded. The question remains therefore how do you give the ONLY ONE "Accepted Solution". I will be fair about this. I cannot take the award. One of you two have to. Hmmm...

I am going to give it to _3mp3ror. Why? The fairest way I can see on how to give it to _3mp3ror_ is that _3mp3ror_ researching of the  answer in _3mp3ror_'s comment as demonstrated and the system registry would be perceived as having more control of the Windows Slide Show 'speed' -- but again it wasn't; it only offers 3 speed choices. That is the only way I can assign that one "Accepted Solution" per EE rules. In terms of points, I am going to split them 50/50 or 250 points to each of you for fairness.

Again, thank you BOTH!!!
