    Images in the below directories are displayed in this dialog box. Simply delete them to make them disappear.

    C:\WINDOWS\Web\Wallpaper
    C:\WINDOWS\System32
    C:\WINDOWS\*

    Images from the directory "My Pictures" and subfolders also display.
    Images from other folders do not.

    Thats not the problem... :(...... it used to read JPG's, and BMP's, and it never read from My Pictures. Now, all of a sudden (don't know how), it reads from my pictures, and it only reads bmp's..... :(

    The background selection list should display most, if not all picture formats (GIF, JPG, BMP, PNG, etc.) from the directories I mentioned.

    I am not aware of a tweak (registry?) that allows you to select which formats or which directories to display to this list.

    Maybe dealer has an idea. Sorry.

    Mine is the other way around. Only bmp's seem to work with it. My Picture folder has always shown up on mine.
