    Problems when changing wallpaper.


    1. I had a folder in D:\wallpaper, but it was removed. Now when I right click -> personalize -> desktop background, the folder is still there haunting me. How to remove it from the list?

    2. Now I can't change my wallpaper anymore by right-clicking desktop -> personalize -> desktop background. Why?

    Have you tried to right click on an image and 'set as desktop background'?

    Hello ddadda,

    You could use OPTION ONE in the tutorial below to reset the list back to default, or use OPTION TWO to remove specific folder locations from the list.

    Desktop Background - Remove Picture Location History - Windows 7 Support Forums

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
