    I have additional themes added to my desktop themes. They appear to have come from my pictures. No more are adding at this time. How do I remove these unwanted pictures from "themes". A right click on these unwanted pictures in "themes" only yields "what's this" & I don't know how to access the folder where "themes" are kept. (I am using XP home). Please advise Gary

    If you are referring to wallpaper choices on the Desktop tab, the unwanted pictures come from your C:\Documents and Settings\Your_User_Name\My Documents\My Pictures folder.

    You can move your pictures out of the folder and after a reboot they will no longer show up as wallpaper choices. You can also edit the registry shell folder settings but I don't recommend it.
