My holiday snaps have appeared automatically in the Desktop's Background list. Why??
How do I delete them of the list??
Thanks.

one solution might be to move them from the folder that they are in to a folder called my snaps or something then restart the comp and they should disapear from the dropdown list i think

All pictures in the root directory of the My Documents\My Pictures folder will be included in the Background list.

Follow SurgicalSpirit's advice. Put the snaps in a subfolder.

Thanks,
I've moved them into a different folder, and they are no longer on the Background list.
