Desktop wallpaper

  willo500 23:51 04 Apr 2005

I used a picture from my pictures for the background to the desktop but now find for some reason I have lots of my pictures available for use when I right click the desktop and then "properties" and "desktop".

I don't suppose it's a major problem but I would quite like to undo this situation and go back to the standard windows default backgrounds, using pictures as and when I want. The way it is just now makes it difficult to locate the background I want from a long list.

Please could you advise.

Many thanks,

Your normal wallpapers are usually in

Try using 'browse' from desktop setting tab and go that folder and choose one wallpaper from there and see if this resolves.
