Ok I currently have my desktop background searching through my whole pictures folder of thousands of pictures and folders.

(found on Reddit)
1- In Windows Explorer, head to the folder that contains all your other picture folders.
2- Do a search for type:image
3- Select all, right-click, set as background.

Now I want to see the path to the picture on the screen.    IE  C:\pictures\folder755\subfolder2\image.jpg

Looking for either a way to accomplish this or a new program which will do the same.

Thank you,
