Windows 7: Desktop backgrounds

Desktop backgrounds

This is when I go to customize my background. Looking at the choices from the drop-down box, I have 2 that are listed as: Windows Desktop Backgrounds.

Can anyone tell me why this is? Also, is it possible (probably though the registry) to remove 1 of them?

Hello CJW,

I'm not sure how you got two instances of the same folder in the list, but you may be able to remove one of them using one of the options in the tutorial below.

Desktop Background - Remove Picture Location History

Hope this helps,
