Is there a Desktop, Background, Wallpaper gadget to...

Is there a gadget which can quickly (one click) pause, reverse, or advance the Windows 7 built in wallpaper rotation? I know you can right click and choose "Next destktop background." And I know you can pause the rotation via power options. But what I'm looking for is a tiny gadget capable of doing pause/reverse/advance with one click.

Anyone know of a gadget that can do this?

To answer jplinux3. You should be able to navigate to:


and find the appropriate folder/file for the wallpaper you want to purge and just delete the applicable file(s) like any others.

Still looking for a gadget for one click advance/pause/reverse of the wallpaper background.
