hi,
Thank you for asking this question on justanswer.com

Do you want to see file name on the background slide show running on windows 7?

thanks.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Want to see the file names on the actual slideshow, not screensaver, on windows 7. I'm not sure what you mean by background.

 

Thanks

Expert:  Wiz of All replied 3 years ago.
There is no way to see file names on slide show in windows 7.
There is a workaround:
Go to 'Personalisation'. Near the bottom left of the window, if you have Slide Show on, you'll see the Slide Show word under Desktop Background.
Click on Desktop Background. That'll bring up the thumbnails of the pictures you've selected for Slide Show. Near the top right of the window, click Clear All. Then Save Changes.
You'll be brought back to the previous screen, the Slide Show word will now be replaced by the current wallpaper's filename.

Just repeat the steps and Select All the wallpapers to restart the Slide Show.

I hope this was what you were asking. If not, then please elaborate on your issue. Thanks. I'll be glad to help.

There are two slide show players in Windows 7 (that I can find): Windows Live Photo Gallery & Pictures Library. Once you start the slide show, you must stop the slide show before you can do anything. I cannot see the Personalisation command. Which program are you using?
Expert:  Wiz of All replied 3 years ago.
Please do the following:

Right-click any blank area of the desktop and select Personalize. This opens the Personalization window.

thanks.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Sorry that I was not clear. I want to run the picutres as stand alone slide show, not background wallpaper.
Expert:  Wiz of All replied 3 years ago.
For a standalone slide show, I'll recommend the following article:

Standalone Slide Show

When you check "Show Picture information", then you can see the file name on the picture.

thanks.
