Win XP Desktop Background - A huge List!!

  FCD 19:03 09 Sep 06

I recently imported a new photograph as background on my desktop. But, when I looked at the list in properties/desktop/background I found that I had imported several folders worth of pictures [from My Pictures] - some 100+photos.

I have tried for a couple of days to clear this list - with no success. It must be fairly simple so very grateful for any help in removing these entries.

The link covers how to remove the basic default backgrounds installed with win XP - it does not help for photographs in the "My Pictures" folder - including the default microsoft ones.

I do not wish to delete the photos - only the link to them in the background list.

create another folder 'my photo's' and move your pictures to it .

all pictures in "my picture folder" are avaiable for desktop backgrounds when you remove your pictures to another folder they will not be available.

hope this helps

Thanks - worked fine. Then I moved them back into My Pictures and the list stayed clear.
