How to Modify Windows 7 Desktop Background Packages

I love the Windows 7 desktop background packages that are available on the Internet. However, in every package I find one or more backgrounds that I don't particularly like.

I would like to access the desktop package and delete some of the images stored therein.

Is there a way to do this ?

It's quite easy to do this. All you have to do is:

1). Right Click on Desktop Background and select "Personalize."
2). Scroll down to the lower left bottom of the Control Panel and click "Change Background."
3). Look for the title that says "Picture Location" and look for the area that you have changed your themes in.
If you don't know where you saved them, you can click the "Browse" button. That will enable you to explore your entire drive until you find them.
4). Once you have found the folder that they're in, you will see them laid out on the screen. You will have the authority to pick and choose what pictures you'd like to display on your background.

Hopefully this helped!
