In Windows 10, is there a way to show a full-screen slideshow and not see your desktop icons and open windows, etc?

This was doable (on-demand) in past versions of Windows by setting the screensaver to display a slideshow then clicking to run the screensaver. However, it appears that Windows 10 does not have a screensaver. Is that correct?

I did find a background setting for playing a slideshow but the images are just that, in the background, so the taskbar and desktop icons and any open windows are still visible.

PowerPoint shows slideshows (of slides that have inserted images) but I'm looking for a way to simply point to a folder and then launch a slideshow displaying the images in that folder (either in order or shuffled).

By the way, I also noticed that the background slideshow gives you a minimum of only 1 minute to change images. It would be nice to have a change option measured in seconds and also a way to go back or forward through the slides.

I'm sure there are a lot of apps out there which will do this but my question is really to find out if Windows 10 has the ability.
