HI,
by right clicking on the desktop, I go to the display properties. Then I
click the >desktop< tab. I see the list of the desktop images.
Between them is one > Internet explorer wallpaper< which I would like to
remove.
I went to the > Web< file, but it`s not there.
How do I do this ??
Thanks
Phil

The "web" would be for an image that would be an active
desktop item, you can have a window, say a stock quote or
weather that is active in/on the desktop. Often when trying
to set a new background wallpaper, you can click the "set as
desktop item" by mistake.
The Internet Explorer wallpaper is a file that was created
when you right clicked on an image in a webpage and then
click"set as background" to change the picture, either
select another picture from any picture file on your
computer or on-line, the current file will be over-written.
If you want to save a current Internet Wallpaper, use right
click, "save picture as" before you change the background.

Hi Phil,

The "Internet Explorer Wallpaper.bmp" is coming from this folder:

%AppData%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer

Type the above path exactly in Start/Run.

The "Application Data" folder is hidden (note this point in case you're going to access the folder via Windows Explorer)
