Windows 7: How do I show filenames on wallpaper and screen saver p

How do I show filenames on wallpaper and screen saver p

Can anyone tell me how to display the filenames along with the photos I've included in my customized wallpaper and screensaver?

It would come in useful if I particularly liked a photo currently being displayed and wanted to locate it so that I could maybe print it out. I was able to do this with my screensaver in XP.

Unless the function is built into the actual screensaver application then this will not be possible.

There are of course many different photo screensaver applications available. Microsoft themselves produce an enhances version of the included Screensaver that is installed with the Photo management part of the Live essentials suite Google also provide a screensaver with Picassa
