    Hey everybody, i have a quick question about setting wallpapers of your own as your desktop. I have a couple pictures that i want to set to change every 30 minutes...but the thing is, when i check the box "change every ----" it changes the pic i had normally chosen to start out with?

    In further detail, i would click on the picture i want my desktop to be, but once i click that, the check mark in the "change every ----" as well as the check mark for "random order" goes back to default (unchecks themselves). and then when i click the picture i want, then Check the change every ---- and random order, it then changes the picture i had originally chosen.

    I remember yesterday that it wasn't doing u think im forgetting something or possibly i got a bug?

    I don't really see your problem ? This is just how that feature behaves. If you want this to work just select the right folder and check the 2 boxes - and you gonna be fine. Of course it changes back if you select an image manually. It assumes you want that now as your default background.

    I think it might be an indicator of how critical people perceive this "problem" to be.

    Whatever picture you select first, it's just going to change in 30 minutes anyway - why worry about it changing now as opposed to half an hour from now?
