The wallpaper I have had on my W98 PC for years suddenly disappeared and I can't restore it, even though I have the original photo it was made from in one of my PC's files. When I go to Control Panel > Display > Wallpaper and Browse for the photo, I can find the folder it is in, but can't select the photo from the file because the 'Type of File' box can't be changed from 'Wallpaper', and the photo requires a gif 'Type of File' to show in the selection box. I can't remember how I got past this difficulty when I first used the photo as the source for my wallpaper.

Can anyone suggest a way to get my wallpaper photo back?
