I know that one of you smart computer people out there will be able to help me out on this little problem that doesn’t really cause any computer issues–it just irritates me. So here goes:
I like to change my wallpapers from time to time, and suddenly, when I go to the Control Panel, Desktop Background, I find a whole lot of my personal family pictures on the background list. How they got there, I don’t know. I never set them up as background wallpaper. And while I love my family members dearly, I don’t really want them up on my desktop all the time. There is no way to delete from the Display Properties window that I can see. I’ve tried right clicking, and all I get is a “What’s This?” Well, I know what that is, I just don’t want it on the list. Can someone give me some ideas on how to get them off the background list?
Thanks for the suggestions, panic and AOwl. After doing some more research, I found this bit of information
"You can use a personal picture as a background. All of your personal pictures located in My Pictures are listed by name in the Background list. "
So I guess that explains why my personal pictures are listed in the Desktop, Display Properties. Sorry for taking up your time with this. I guess I should have checked a little further before I posted. (But I still think XP doing that is dumb!)
