      Hi Alan,
      go into Windows Explorer and move the whole Picture Folder somewhere else on your C drive.
      Open Control Panel, check your Display listing and you should find that they have all been removed from the list.
      You can then close out the Control Panel and then move the folder back to it's original position

      Subject: Desktop Background, Windows XP

      Dear Experts,
      Somehow Windows XP has added the contents of the 'My Pictures' Folder to the list of backgrounds for the desktop, about 50 pictures.
      I've tried to delete these references, but 'right click' doesn't give me anything, 'highlight + delete'  doesn't delete them. There's no Help.
      I know they are harmless, but I'd like to have some say in the matter.
      How did they get there? (I didn't consciously do anything .)
      How can I delete them?
      Alan Cassley.
