I took a couple screenshots earlier from Toby Keith's twitter page. They are on my desktop. When I try to delete them, a box comes up that says "This is no longer located in C:\*****\Desktop... verify the item's location and try again." How do I get rid of them from my desktop? Thanks.

If you didn't paste them, they were overwritten. They will be written to a temp file, and each time you take a screen shot, it will overwrite the previous one.

Sometimes the desktop state doesn't update when you delete something and needs to be refreshed. Press F5 when viewing your desktop and they should vanish.
