i clicked on a picture on ebay and as above its set as a desktop do i get rid of it ?.

Thanks, I'd never tried doing that before but now have ... not sure what it's for!

Try hovering over the desktop item, until you see a little black down arrow. Click/hover on that. Then select the Customise option (Customize my desktop I think it is called). Then switch to Web tab and find the ebay address of the picture in the list and select to delete it.

Like that?

Surely if you go to Windows explorer>desktop it will show up as a file on the desktop that you can right click on and choose delete?

silverous:followed your directions and there was no problem.i ticked resolved 22:14.ticked pc know how is very limited...hence post...

  silverous 23:05 17 Sep 2006

Still not resolved, I had that with a post earlier, if you post after ticking resolved does it untick it or something ?!

  dippydon 17:15 18 Sep 2006

When you tick as resolved, make sure you click the resolved box beside it.

You cannot tick as resolved and post at the same time, it must be two separate actions.
