    Pretty simple question; when wanting to select a new desktop wallpaper, I just noticed XP decided to show me everything that is also in the "My Pictures" folder to select from, which in turn makes my desired wallpapers a bit harder to navigate to, since the list is so long now. Anyway to make XP look only at the .bmp's in my Windows folder, and not look in the My Pictures folder when I want to choose a new wallpaper?

    Thanks men, and ladies.

    The only way that springs to mind is to hack around with your default paths. (right click My Computer, Properties, Advanced, System Variables.)
