Simple Wallpaper Question



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.

hmmm never played with my wallpaper much and just noticed your right..thats kinda annoying, gonna have to find a way to change that :p
The only way that springs to mind is to hack around with your default paths. (right click My Computer, Properties, Advanced, System Variables.)

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
