How do I bar/delete My Pictures from auto. insert. Desktop/Wallpaper, yet retain pics in My Pictures? Wind. XP installed.

You can and you can't

The location of your My Pictures and other information is stored int he registry at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders

The My Pictures quick link on the start menu uses this, and so does the display properties.

Simply changing where they are stores only changes where it looks.

Hi!
Thanks, Phil. Just as I suspected: not a lot I can do about it! And I've tried!
