Somehow all of the images from my pictures file are in the display properties background tab. How do I remove these?

well, technically, that is by design....if you remove them from MY PICTURES, you will remove them from there wallpaper choices.

Thank you for your reply...

I added an image as wallpaper from my Camedia Master Program. I am not sure if that caused all of my images to go to the wallpaper or not. I just know that they were not all there before. How did they get there and is there any way to remove them without deleating them from "my pictures"?

Well, I've looked through the registry and read everything I can, and there does not seem to be away to stop this function. Not sure how you say it wasn't like that before as it seems to have been that way on every system I've seen

The only way it seems to pull them out is to create a subfolder within My pictures (call it "not wallpaper") and sticking image in there

Thank you gerryf for all of your trouble. Maybe I just did not notice that they were there as I have not changed my background in some time. Again, thank you
