* My Pictures Folder *



I asked a question a while back on how to stop Windows from showing me the contents of the "My Pictures" folder when I was choosing a new desktop wallpaper.

...many were stumped.

I mickey moused a solution by moving everything in my "My Pictures" folder into another folder I created called "My Images" and that solved the problem perfectly. I even customized the folders icon so that it looked just like the original "My Pictures" folder.

Now onto my question;

I've just now noticed that even though I've deleted it in the past, the "My Pictures" folder keeps getting re-created when I reboot. Nothing is inside of it, but it is just there... I delete it, reboot, and there it is again!

Is there a way to stop Windows from re-creating the "My Pictures" folder for good? I would love to use it, but it made a mess of my desktop wallpaper list!


Not without going through a very complicated procedure. But you can move it and hide it inside another folder if you don't want to see it.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
