I am bring a another alternative to change wallpaper after X minutes/hours on Windows.
The source come from this website "http://vsbabu.org/mt...er_changer.html"
I will repeat here in case of the website become offline some day. I hope not.
Are 3 steps.
1 - Create a python script to pick randomly the images
2 - Create a vbs script to avoid display the command prompt
3 - Create a task in Task Scheduler.
1º Python script


picdir = The path where is your wallpapers, with two backslashes.
setbg = The path where is bsetroot.exe
If you don't have wallpapers with GIF or PNG extensions, put a # in front of the lines, like this:
#picfiles.append(glob(picdir + "*.gif"))
#picfiles.append(glob(picdir + "*.png"))
2º Vbs script
Where "c:\bbZero\Scripts\bbzero-wallpaper.py" is the path you saved the python file, with one backslash.
3º Task Scheduler
Press Win + R, digite taskschd.msc and hit enter. Or Control panel > System and Security > Task Scheduler.
Click Action menu > Import Task and import the XML file.
On triggers tab, change the time
On Actions tab, edit the path of the vbs file

If you want make a shortcut, do it from vbs file. Or use bbZero menu  :wink:
