Windows 10: Deleted backgrounds still showing in personalisation window.. Solved

    Deleted backgrounds still showing in personalisation window..

    I downloaded and tried out some different pictures for my desktop background. After deciding on one of them I deleted the others from my pictures folder but the deleted pictures are still showing in the personalisation window and can even still be set as background. Any ideas why that's happening or how to stop it?

    Hello Outlander, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    The five images you see under "Choose your picture" are just your recently used pictures. As you change your desktop background, it'll replace them with the 5 most recent ones used.

    This helps allow you to be able quickly switch between your last 5 used pictures.
