    ok, heres my dilemna...i got all these extra pics in my desktop, apparently left there from viewing em in 'windows picture and fax viewer' or photoshop, and i dont need em there, but i cant seem to find a way to get rid of em (items in desktop wont right-click for options) i looked through all i could think of for a setting thats tellin my comp to send pics to desktop, but cant find it......
    am i overlooking something? (probably somethin thats a no-brainer?)
    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    for some reason, they might be getting saved here (xp) -

    C:\Documents and Settings\-your name-\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft

    have a look there and if they are there, then delete them then check the list again - i'm pretty sure it wont be 'picture and fax viewer' and i dont think it would be photoshop either, any other image editor/software you've been using ?

    that folder's a hidden one - open a folder, click the 'tools' menu > folder options > tick the box "show hidden files" - that will let you see the 'local settings' folder

    all pics in your My Pictures folder appear in the Display > Desktop panel by default.
    If you don't want them to show up in that dialog, move them to another folder.
