If you have a cd burner, burn them to CDs. Better yet use a dvd burner. DVDs will hold a lot more pictures. If you have plenty of hard drive space, move them off of your desktop and store them in your My Pictures folder that is in in your My Documents folder.

hi, welcome to geekstogo
I don't know if that is a good idea as some programs intergrate photos in their usage, meaning that beyond the obvious places, like my pictures, etc., any blanket deletion of all jpeg extentions or other photo type formats in the windows system(for example by doing a search in a certain extention and then deleting one by one) would seriously corrupt the system rather than gain you something; besides, XP takes only about 1.5gb and most systems are now running on large harddrive of at least 40gb. What take up space is bloatware and some factory state computers come out with a lot of bell and whistles that one doesn't have to put up with, so rather than stripping the system of photos, find out which programs you have and of those which if unwanted can be safely removed, thanks

Are you talking about pictures that you got off of the Internet by right clicking on a picture and choosing Set as Background, or are they pictures that you have in your My Pictures folder.

Any pictures that YOU put on the desktop can be removed by right click and choose delete. Then empty your recycle bin.
That goes for any other picture you have stored in folders you do not want.

Do not mess with the pictures that are part of the programs and OS as previously stated.

If you are removing a lot, I would do a defrag also.
