Editors' Review

+
There are two kinds of computer users: Those who never change their wallpaper, and those who can't stand to look at the same desktop day in and day out. DeskSlide suits the second type by providing a tool that automatically changes the desktop wallpaper at custom intervals. Users can set the time between image shifts and change how the images are displayed. Although the program does not drain system resources, we found the interface to be somewhat inconvenient, requiring the main dialog box to be opened to change wallpaper quickly. We would have liked to see a few extra features commonly included in rival programs, such as a calendar display or the ability to overlay several images. On the whole, we saw little that would make this download stand out in a large field of similar freeware applications on the market.

"thanks Deskslide"

October 07, 2014  |  By vista user

 |  Version: DeskSlide 2.1 build 2.1.0.12

Pros

nice program. easy to use. win8
unlike stupid MS desktop... photos look great, uses subfolders! "nice", and allows user controlled options.

Cons

works well with NO CONS.. umm maybe one, careful installing it unless you want a new home page and some other programs. however the decline works well for the programs that you do not want.

"Does what is says and that too in a simple manner"

November 08, 2009  |  By aaasolanki

 |  Version: DeskSlide 2.1 build 2.1.0.12

Pros

Simple to use

Cons

Eats way too much RAM as compared to others (Webshots, for example). On my machine it was eating 12 MB whereas Webshots takes just 6 MB, eventhough Webshots packs in more bells and whistles.

Summary

Try out Webshots, It's better.

"Works so far."

September 06, 2008  |  By nowinuse

 |  Version: DeskSlide 2.1 build 2.1.0.12

Pros

No hiccups, no conflicts that I can tell. Works with Vista; not everything does.

Cons

None so far.

Summary

As usual, the chances of success increase with the simplicity of the software. I have put 16 pictures and Illustrator graphics on with no decline in performance.

"Works great!"

July 31, 2008  |  By joreb122

 |  Version: DeskSlide 2.1 build 2.1.0.12

Pros

I tried various wallpaper changer programs, but they didn't change on schedule and sometimes not at all. Don't know if that's because of the software or my Vista operating system, but this one works exactly as it says it will and it's easy to use. Good stuff!
