Is it possible to put my own pictures into the permanent wallpaper file so that they can be changed easily instead of having to look through My Pictures to find them again? I cannot find the location of the Desktop files that came with Windows XP Home.

Hi flyerjudy,

I looked for the ascent wallpaper and found it as a jpg file in the C:\windows\web\wallpaper

You should be able to save .jpg and .bmp files to that locatinn and use them as "standard" wallpaper selections.

I hope this helps,

Right-click your desktop and select properties to open up the Display Properties. Click the Desktop tab and select Browse. You can look in different areas for your picture that you want to use, but I would recommend only adding one at a time. When you click Open, it will save it in your possible selections for your background. Highlight the picture that you want, then apply.

Hi flyerjudy, :thumbsup: to BC

The method rigel suggested will do what you wish, I keep my custom wallpapers in that folder and it works fine. To make finding my custom wallpapers easier I also labeled them all with the prefix custom (ie. custom - wallpaper 1, custom - wallpaper 2 etc...). This way they all stay grouped together and are easier to find when I want to use them.
There is no justice, there is just us.
