Recycle Bin/Properties/Global... uncheck "Display delete confirmation
dialog"; you can also pick immediate removal under the same tab.

Hi, all. I'm kind of new to this site. I've got sort of a new question
about deleting files.

I wanted to customize and create my desktop themes by inserting different
pictures that I either had already or found on the internet. I saw two on
the internet that I wanted to save into my desktop and I right clicked on
it...and then clicked "save as desktop". I thought it would take the picture
to the desktop file in which I could make it my desktop picture if I wanted.
To my surprise, I signed off and saw my desktop picture, which was orginally
one of the windows photos...and the two pictures I found and tried to save as
a desktop were ON my screen, with the windows photo still there. It looks
awful, and I have no idea how to get those two pictures off. I can't find
the file, and I don't know where it was saved to.
Is there anyway I can get those pictures off? Any help would be greatly
appreciated.

*Note: I wanted only ONE of those as a desktop picture and for it to cover
the whole screen, not part of the screen which is what it looks like now. The
sizing is off and one of the pictures is cut off. Please help. Thanks!

Maybe I'm more computer illiterate than I thought. I'm not sure what you mean
by "system restore to just before the event".

learned something. Thanks again! :-)
