    Remove image from desktop background


    Dear All,

    This might sound little crazy (i apologize beforehand) but there is no harm in getting my doubt clarified. So,here it is. I normally download Wallpaper collection, which is in zip format containing 100+ images, unzip them to a folder and use the entire folder as my desktop background. Now since there is a mix variety of images in this zip files, many a times I do not like the currently displayed wallpaper. I then select "Next desktop background" from the context menu. But the disliked wallpaper again comes back after some interval (which it should as the image still stays in the folder). I understand that I can browse through the folder (or go to desktop--> Personalize and untick the images) and get rid of the disliked images but this process becomes tedious when my collection has now got over 1200 + images. So, I was wondering if it is possible to include an option like "Remove this image from desktop background" and get rid of a particular wallpaper for good. Is that possible?

    Thanks,
    Troy.

    If it were me, I would simply open the wallpaper folder using thumbnail view, select the ones I didn't want to use -- and deleted those. That's a lot faster than unticking them one at a time.
