A strange question you may think and I doubt if it is possible, I just want to do it for a bit of fun, it is not important but a challenge to all. Say for example when a PC first boots it displays "Bliss" then at Midday it changes to "Autumn" then at 6pm changes to "Ascent" Any comments apart from dont be so stupid :-)

In theory might be possible - make a Slideshow of just a few pics, each with the time set between from the normal 5 - 10 seconds, to maybe a few hours or more.

It would help if you stated which OS.

In W7 you can set the wallpaper to change after a set time but not at a set time of day.
