where are you saving them to ?? if they are in you "My Pictures" folder they will show up in there .. also in your windows/resource/themes folder ...

I have found that if you have desktop architect installed they will show up from that program folder as well ...

I have many subfolders that were created in My Pictures, and those pics don't show up in the list. You might want to try organizing your pics in subfolders if you haven't. And like lechtard said, you can remove any pics you want from the themes. I got rid of most of the default Windows picks to clean up the list a bit.

I think it also gets some of the pics from C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper. It sounds like you are just saving to one of the places that Windows checks for wallpapers. If you stop saving there and save to your own specified folder (besides My Pictures), I think it should solve the prob.

I think you can get rid of the default ones by killin them from C:\windows\web\wallpaper, but they are also in My Pictures folder

On display properties, select NONE, then apply/ok. Once you open it again, any pictures that were listed but deleted on your hard drive should not appear now.

The ones I deleted didnt appear after I opened it again...without setting it to none first....
Wat I want is to stop the pix from the "My Pictures "folder from loading up in the display settings......
There's got to be a box or a tweak or something that will stop that from happening as I have some nudy pix I dont want to be wallpapers......
Be4 I reformatted they didnt go into the display thingy???????why now?????

Make a folder called "My Pics" and put all your stuff in there, then delete "My Pictures" (I hate default windows folders becuase of little quirks like this).

If I do this doesnt windows automatically default a new folder on logon??????

Pretty sure it does so then i would have 2 folders ??????? Should I hide the original my pictures and create a shortcut to it...would that solve the prob???

Dont worry tried hidingit and making a shortcut and it didnt work:(

I store all my pictures in a folder other than "My Pictures". True, it does bring the folder back every now and then if you delete it (havn't found a way around this yet), but I either delete it again or just leave it there. One thing you might could do is keep all your pictures in a seperate folder and put any wallpapers you want in "My Pictures". Make it work to your advantage. :)

The easiest way to solve this is to make a folder named Pics' in the doc's folder - and hide the my pics folder in your docs folder, make sure you move all the pics from the my pics folder to the newly created folder first ...

Then you won't get the problems you are having ..

Sounds like the best idea.........although zyfos's idea is not a bad one either.....

Anyway thanx to everyone that tried to help I'll be doing the last 2 answers...
