hi, thanks, but i want to make a copy of it, that seems to just tell me what it is, or have i lost the plot..

maybe both.

Right-click on desktop, background, browse, select the picture you want to copy, and send to CD or floppy disk should work. At least it does in Windows ME. I can also open it in Irfan View. Just look at the file name that is currently highlighted.

if i right click on the desktop, there is no background or browse, but if i go to properties, all it has is irfanview wallpaper, and on right clicking that i get "whats this"....

do a search for *.jpg, *.jpeg, *.bmp etc. until you find it.
