How to set Dynamic Wallpaper in Windows 10?

There is a way to set a slideshow of pictures as your wallpaper in Windows 10. This is a built-in feature that changes the images in the background one after the other after a fixed interval of time. But static pictures changing over time are not dynamic wallpapers. Dynamic wallpapers are the ones whose elements keep on changing randomly.

  • Right-click on that file and choose Properties.
  • Click on the Compatibility tab.
  • Then check the box next to “Run this program as an administrator.”
  • Go to DesktopHut’s official site and download a few live wallpapers of your choice from here.
  • Now open the Desktophut application and then click on “Select Live Wallpaper.”
  • Browse for the live wallpaper that you just downloaded and select it.
  • Then click on the small button in the application.
  • Then minimize the application, and you will have the dynamic wallpaper running in the background.

Don’t close the application, though, as it will terminate the wallpaper too. This is a free application, so you don’t need to worry about paying any premium for these dynamic wallpapers.
