Windows 10: how to schedule a wallpaper change

You can change the Windows 10 wallpaper whenever you want, but it is essentially a manual process. Equally, there is an option to set up a slide show and make Windows 10 browse a folder of images if you want to automate it. However, this does not allow you to choose when or how often a wallpaper will be changed.

Similarly, if you need to schedule a wallpaper change on your system, you will have to use an application to do this work. Therefore, we recommend using a Wallpaper Changer Scheduler call.

Schedule wallpaper change in Windows 10

The first thing you have to do is download the Wallpaper Changer Scheduler application. The name said application shows you that it is only designed for this purpose and for little else. You must execute it and click on the “Add event” button at the top. In the window that opens, select when you want the wallpaper to change.

In addition, you can change it daily, weekly, when the mouse is inactive, when you move the mouse (after being inactive) and when logging into your system.

Now, if you choose to change the wallpaper daily or weekly, you can select what time it changes for both options. Regardless of when you choose to change the wallpaper, you must do a couple of things; select the style, that is, how it is applied.

The options in the “Wallpaper style” drop-down menu are the same as Windows 10. Secondly, you must select the wallpaper to which the application will change. Now, once you've done this, click on "Create."

You must schedule the time well

You can add several events if you need the wallpaper to change several times a day. But the application will not change the background if the time established in an event you just created has already passed. Therefore, time is the trigger.

As for the usage scenarios, you can match them with the Night Light programming function. When enabled, a wallpaper change can be a good idea. Also, if you decide to program the light and dark mode of Windows 10, this application can be equally useful. Making sure you have a wallpaper that looks good with the current theme.

Whenever you want to change the wallpaper that is used when an event is running, you can do so by editing it. Unfortunately, a single event can only have one wallpaper assigned.

The application cannot read from a complete wallpaper folder as the "Slide show" function.

Finally, changing a wallpaper is not exactly difficult, but if you need to do it frequently, or you prefer the change to occur at a certain time. An application that can handle it for you is the best option.
