hi, bit of an odd thing. not greatly in need of fixing, i'm just a little confused!

my pictures are appearing as backgrounds in desktop properties.ie when i go to change my background display picture, a lot of my digital cam pics show as backgrounds. is there a particular file extension that show certain files as background files? the only thing i can think of that might have caused this is syncing my laptop with my pc. i know something went wrong on the pc because some synced files were left with wrong file names.

any ideas? can i just delete them from display properties or would that delete copies i have in 'my pictures'??

Anything that you put into My Pictures is made availiable in the background list.

without browsing to them? they actually appear in the list, under 'azul' and other such backgrounds?

ok now i'm more confused...i just checked again and they've gone
