This may be one of those, "yeah, we know that" kind of Works for Me Wednesday entries, but here it goes anyway.
As I was uploading digital pics one day, I thought that there must be some way to be able to use the pictures, to see them on a rotating basis. I should be able to use them as a screensaver. I went to START/Control Panel/Display. Then clicked on the screensaver tab, and one of the options there is My Pictures slideshow. If you save your pictures in the My Pictures folder, you'll be all set. So, now when I'm not working at the computer, I can look up and I might see this blast from the past:
or this cute grin
or this girl who is growing up so fast.
You can use a photo on your desktop, too, by following those same steps, and going to desktop instead of screensaver and adding and selecting the picture that you want to feature, but there's an even easier way that perhaps you didn't know. Just open your photo folder, right click on the photo that you want, and click, "Set as Desktop background." I should probably change more often, but I have had this beautiful picture that I took almost a year and a half ago on my desktop all this time.
