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

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.

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).
