    Default Next Desktop Background missing from Windows context menu

    Up until recently i was able to change my Windows7 Home Premium desktop background by right clicking the desktop and pressing 'n'.

    Yesterday that seemed to disappear.

    Does anyone know what might have happened?.

    Run Registry Editor (regedit) and locate the registry path:

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\shellex\Contex tMenuHandlers

    Now delete the registry folder DesktopSlideShow.

    I am not sure what happened to make it disappear however I did get it to come back by re-enter my background pictures then click save changes then it came back.
