Deleting Screen Saver!!! Please HELP!!

  Solartopi 19:24 06 Aug 2007

Hi there Gurus,

Another silly mistake!!! Can anyone please HELP!!

A friend sent me some pictures - far too many - and I'd like to delete some of them. They were sent to me via Shutterfly. Can you tell me how to delete - I don't see anything that indicates deleting. Also in playing around I turned one of the pictures into a screen saver. It is very blurred and I would like to delete the screen saver. How do I do this?

XP ?

Where have you saved the pictures ?

If for example in My Pictures,highlight them and delete or right click the picture in question and delete.
If received by email,they maybe stored in your documents folder.

Changing your screensaver:

1. Click on the Start menu. The Start menu will expand.
2. Click on the Control Panel icon. The Control Panel will open.
3. Double-click on the Display icon. The Display Properties dialog box will open.
4. Click on the Screen Saver tab.
5. Click on the drop-down menu under Screen Saver to expand it.
6. Click on the screen saver you wish to use. For example, you can click on 3D FlowerBox.
7. Click Preview to see what the screen saver looks like.
8. Click on OK to select the screen saver. The Display Properties dialog box will close. You've successfully changed your screen saver!

Oh yes, sorry. I should have mentioned, XP Pro

Thanks I will have to search where they were saved. I really can't remember. I'll have to search.

If you don't choose a particular Folder then they go anywhere, do they. Oh dear, if that's the case I have a lot of work on my hand in searching.

Oh Sorry, thanks for the Link. Great stuff there.

May I ask you a personal question? Where do you kind & helpful folks get all this info from. You have it all stored on your computer.

The Line 51 link skidzy gave you ... open it and then Bookmark it if using Firefox, or Add to Favourites if using IE. This is how most of us learn ourselves anyway.

Its just something we pick up along the way.
Reading and researching various problems helps us diagnose problems.
Some issues often reoccur and we can point the person in the right direction.

Four years ago i knew nothing of pc's,this forum and Goggle have taught me everything i know,and the experience of now building /rebuilding computers as a hobby.

What does amaze me though,is you never stop learning...always someone who can help you,especially here at PCA.

I originally came here thinking i had a rogue dialer installed on my first pc..i was scared ! my phone bills where high,this turned out to be an old Amstrad email phone dialing out.

I was welcomed and politely helped with a further problem and been here since.

I have never met Skidzy, but do consider him/her :-)) a Friend, and I am sure the feeling is mutual.
