Windows 7: Problems with screen saver and copy-paste from web browser

11 Apr 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit (I think)
Problems with screen saver and copy-paste from web browser

I'm experiencing 2 problems within Windows 7 and hope maybe someone here can help.
1) When I set my screensaver to photo slideshow, and instruct the computer to access my photographs from the "Pictures" folder, it includes random graphics from installed programs (e.g. the logo from my webcam) which are not in the folder. How do I get only my photographs to play?
2) When I copy and paste successive images from the Internet into Word (possibly other programs, but I've only tried Word), even if subsequent images appear on the clipboard, only the first image pastes (i.e. when I copy a second image and hit paste, the previous image appears on the page). Any suggestions to fix this?

Welcome to the forum.

What happens if you set it to use Windows Live Photo Gallery, that should just be your photo's.

I believe the inbuilt clipboard is only capable of holding one thing at a time, it has always been this way. I don't know the name but I do know that there are probably third party programs that will allow you to keep more than 1 item on the clipboard.

Hope this helps you.

Several, including Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

The machine can only access what it finds, so either the access path is incorrect, or you have the logo images in the folder.

Try "Ditto";

Ditto clipboard manager
