I installed a program that changed the desktop backgrounds for ones in a folder selected but didn't like it so uninstalled it. Unfortunatly, the folder I selected for it to use had hundreds of pictures in it and now the default folder that windows goes to when selecting desktop in display properties is that one and it takes ages to display the list of images. Does anyone know how to change the folder back to the original default one. When I click browse it goes straight to my pictures folder.
No. If I navigate to the default windows pictures (c:win/web/wallpaper...) and select one of those it just places the picture in the list that is already there. It seems to be defaulting to my 'My Pictures' folder which obviously has a lot of images in and when selecting 'desktop' in display properties it loads all of these images up. Could it be a default setting in the registry somewhere?
Hmm, maybe I am missing something, but I don't understand where the 'web' bit comes from, in relation to where the background pictures are shown. One has to go through Customize Desktop to get to web. My pics are listed under the Desktop tab. Maybe you need to change something in Customize Desktop?
Hi, Marg the only ones that should be in 'web' are any web pages that one wants to display on the desktop - I have just one such page on mine, and of course Browse does take one to My Pictures as per normal.
