Windows 7 Wallpapers

Every once in a while you may notice that the "Windows Desktop wallpaper applet" gets a little overcrowded with locations in which it thinks you have images with which to beautify your desktop.

The drop down menu entitled "Picture Location" sometimes has multiple entries with the same name, or completely abandoned libraries or whatever.

If you want to clean that up, it's pretty easy.

Hold down the windows k and press 'R'.  This opens the run dialog into which you need to type "regedit".

BACKUP YOUR REGISTRY FIRST!
No, navigate to
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ Wallpapers \ Images
and look at the list of items number 0, 1, 2 and so on.  Delete the offending entries and you're 'Windows Dekstop wallpaper applet" will be nice and clean again.

You're welcome...jerk.
