My Pictures as Wallpaper

  radi8or 08:05 20 May 2007

Mornin all,

I seem to have aquired all My Pictures into my Background list, ie Wallpapers, anyone know how to remove them.

Have tried C\Windows\web\Wallpapers but that only shows Windows installed wallpapers.

There doesn't seem to be a way to remove them in Desktop Properties\Backgrounds.

I think you will find that all pictures in "My Documents" - "My Pictures" are automatically included in the Desktop Background list. I have made a separate folder (on a second drive) for my pictures so this doesn't happen on my computer.

Thanks for quick response, come to think of it I only noticed this after I used a picture from My Pictures for the first time as a background.

If I copy My Pictures elsewhere and then delete originas will that clear them from Wallpapers ?

Problem is I have all sorts of images in My Pictures ie, animated gifs etc.

Thank you, spot on, as usual :0))
