Rate photos during slideshow

My PC randomly shows photos on the lock screen when it's locked. I love seeing photos I haven't seen in a long time. I find myself wishing I could flag them as picks or rejects as they go by. Is there a way to play through all my photos randomly in Lightroom CC or Classic and be able to set these flags while they are playing? A feature like this would make my day!

Many thanks,
dw

Is this a question or feature request?  If it's a feature request I doubt it get any traction as the images shown on the lock screen and desktop "wall paper" are a function of the computer operating system and not LR so requesting that you be able to hit a button to rate such images as they display would have to be implemented by Microsoft or Apple and then somehow those choices would need to be made visible to 3rd party applications such as LR.  Even if all that happened, it's unlikely that Adobe would bother implementing code to look for those ratings, figure out which, if any, catalog entry that image refers to than then update the rating.

Hi Dan,

Thank you for responding and apologies that I didn't state my question/request very clearly.

Is there a way either in Lightroom CC or Classic to have it automatically play randomly through my photos while also allowing me to use the X and Z keys to reject and pick photos?

If yes, that is great - I haven't figured out how to do that, so any guidance would be most helpful.

If no, then I'd say this is a feature request.

Thanks again for your help!

As far as I know, there is no "slideshow" option to display images in a random order - but I don't use the slideshow feature much at all so I may have missed it.  Also, you can't make images changes in slideshow mode as far at I know.  You can in Loupe view though - just hit a number key on keyboard between 0 and 5 to set that number of stars for the image.
