How do I delete Desktop Background I set by mistake

Posted

I opened a web page & clicked on a picture & then clicked on it again to enlarge & then right clicked & was given the option to set the picture as my Desktop Background & now I can't get rid of it & can't find where the image is stored. How do I get rid of it?

Right click anywhere on your desktop and click PROPERTIES. A "Display Properties" window will show up. Click on DESKTOP tab and set the Background picture to whatever you prefer.

Is it listed along with other wallpaper pictures? If so, it is probably in C:\windows\web\wallpaper.
