Also have wallpaper files in: C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper
Can you tell me if I need to fix this and put files in 1 location, seems to me they should not be in all these places.
thanks again for any help.
Hello bstafford these folders should be left as they are as deleting the wrong folder, Example - "C:\Windows\Resources\Themes" will delete the default themes that came with Windows 7 and you would lose the ability to use Aero themes requiring a repair install.
Note the first 2 folders mentioned below are Theme folders and not Wallpaper.
I will attempt to explain the significance of each folder.
The folder at C:\Users\Admin\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Themes contains your saved themes when you select the Personalization panel then change the Desktop background, Window color, Sounds - etc and save the theme under My themes.
The folder at C:\Windows\Resources\Themes contains the default themes that came with windows 7 but can also contain themes added manually by the user.
The folder at C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper just contains the default wallpaper that came installed with windows 7 but is used by the default Windows themes.
