Hi,
Click Start and click on your user name listed near the top of the list,
Open the folder on the main menu to where your images are at
Post a full screen screen shot like you did with in the original question.

But yes drill down through C/ users/ your user name/ and where exactly the images are located when you Browse for the images if you need too in personalization.

Another way that works for me is Everything search.

voidtools


This little program will find just about any thing. Once found just right tick on it and select Open path.

[QUOTE=ICIT2LOL;3340335]Hello Denver mate try these if you haven't already

https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1538-sfc-scannow-command-system-file-checker.html

https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/433-disk-check.html< if necessary include the /f switch and if this does not makeany improvement then just run this switch instead /r in the commandline as per Option2

Runthese in safe mode and the sfc often best run for two to three runs –you can leave out the /r switch in ckdsk if you feel it not necessary

Got the scan running right now.Just started.

Hi,
Have you tried looking in the Public pictures folders for any files ?
Public Folder Sharing - Turn On or Off in Windows 7 - Windows 7 Help Forums

Win7 Personalisation Folders Not Showing.-locations-2.jpg
Public should be listed also under the Favorites listing,

Thanks for the suggestion.

My photos are there. When I go into personalize I have to go to desktop background,drop down menu to click on pictures library...where folder is empty.Click on browse,go to libraries,pictures,my pictures then to any photo folder.I can choose a photo that way. If I click on public folder it shows sample pictures.I went back one step and tried my pictures folder and am able to change photo.I'm happy with that.

Thank you to everyone for youe help.Greatly appreciated.Of all problems I needed help,it had to be this one.

Folders icons showing/not showing content
Why is it that sometimes the folders icons show samples of their contents and sometimes not? Check the two images: the first shows Desktop in Windows Explorer; the second shows the desktop itself. Any idea on how to make Windows always show the folders contents samples? TIA.
