You have to physically download photos to your C drive from your onedrive (a folder or anywhere), then you will be able to use them.

I was thinking the same thing. The files might need to be available locally.
Wouldn't simply right click the One Drive icon in the notification tray and making the appropriate checks in Settings -> Account Tab -> Choose Folders
Accomplish the same thing??

If i do that, will the photos still be available to other devices through one drive?

Yes...essentially you're just downloading a copy from your onedrive to your PC.

I finally did than, but pictures still won't appear as a desktop slideshow. I note that the slideshow option shows as "album". Do I need to put pictures in an album? How?

Check out the screen shot below. Do I need to ignore "album" and just select all the pics?
