    Is there a registry tweak to slow down the Photos screensaver in Win 7?
    Ever since Vista, I miss the ability to actually set the time, and what
    Microsoft now calls slow is anything but. Thanks.

    It doesn't look like it's possible. The three settings, Slow, Medium and Fast are stored
    as 0, 1 and 2 and you can't get any slower than '0'. :-(

    I took the path of least resistance and installed Picasa. It doesn't have a
    lot of settings, but enough for my needs.

    It's stored as a hex number, I tried FF and nothing changed.
    If you want to try any other methods the key is here:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Photo Viewer\Slideshow\Screensaver]
    "Speed"=dword:00000000
