Hello All: I have a problem and I do not know how it happened. I took some pictures with my digital camera and downloaded them into My Pictures. Somehow they have got on to my desk top. When I click on properties and then desk top, there are the pictures. Can someone help me get rid of them? Thank you.

I am not sure I understand what the problem is.

Where are you when you click on properties?
~~~~~~~~

General info that might help:

right click on a folder or object, choose 'delete' to send it to the recycle bin.

right click on a folder or object, choose 'copy', go to another site on your computer, right click, choose 'paste' to copy folder to this new location.

right click on a folder or object, choose 'cut', go to another site on your computer, right click, choose 'paste' to move the folder to the new location.
~~~~~~~~

Perhaps the above info will help, maybe not. If not, could you please explain in more detail what is going on? Thanks.

When I click on properties on my desk top a menu opens up with Themes, Desk Top, Screensavers, and Appearance settings. When I click on Desk Top there are pictures in the drop down menu that I had taken with my digital camera which I did not put in that menu. Do not know how to get them out - they appear as Desk top pictures.

I think someone has been playing with your computer. If you click on 'browse' under 'Desktop' it defaults to the 'My Pictures' folder so its easy to select a wallpaper from there.

Is it a problem having those links in the walpaper list? None of the pics will become your wallpaper unless you select them and click 'apply'.

On my system I seem to only be able to add one extra picture to the standard bunch of bmp files in the windows folder, if I add a second pic the first one dissappears off the list. :thumbsup:

Maybe someone else can help explain this? :flowers:

Thanks Rimmer. I see now how the pics got where they did. No they don't bother me, I just like things neat and orderly lol. Thanks again
