    Default Delete unwanted desktop background images

    Windows XP desktop backgrounds. How do I delete unwanted desktop background images from the list in the Display Properties>Desktop dialogue box. I thought there might be a folder somewhere that I can delete them from.

    Thanks

    Double click on My Computer- C Drive \windows\Web\Wallpaper.
    Delete the ones you don't want and they will no longer show in the Desktops available after a refresh - make sure the Desktop Properties is closed first.
    Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.

    Does that include images I've set from My Pictures by right clicking and then choosing "set as desktop background". I can't find these in that folder. Are they stored somewhere else (other than in my pictures).

    I think each time you do that it overwrites the old image.
