Introduction:

Now it is possible to show slide show on the desktop of your favorite images for Windows XP also as in Windows Vista. This application is able to do slideshow of images. This application saved all modification whatever you did in the last.

Step1:

Add a form in your application and set it's WindowState property Maximize by using its Property.

Also apply its FormBorderStyle none.

Step 2:

Then add 4 controls namely PictureBox, FolderBrowserDialoge, Timer and ContexMenuStrip.

In PictureBox you can set any image. Here I have set mine.

Now all the required controls have been added to the application.

Step 3:

Now in 3rd step we have to set a menu as shown in the pictures below in the ContexMenuStrip so the user can access your slideshow application easily after it completed.
