Is there anyway to have a Chromebook do a slideshow like a Windows 7 Computer does when you right click, select Personalize and then Screensaver?

I guess it would involve using Google Photos.

Thank you very much.

Chromebooks don’t have screensavers per se. But you can play slideshows using Photos.Google.com. The issue there is it will only play a slideshow for an album – one album at a time. So, I just play my “Favorites” album.

  • Open the album
  • Open the first photo
  • click the 3-dot menu in upper right and choose Slideshow
