    Desktop Background Selections Help


    I got to playing with Personalizing the Desktop Background (came with the OEM light blue with some wispy clouds) and just picking on each of the four alternate selections offered, I've lost the original picture. No longer five options, now just the four that were shown as alternatives. How can I find and get back to that original background picture? When "someone" comes in here to see this, she's going to be on my case. A good chance I'll never hear the end of it. Help.

    Hello Clayton,

    If it helps, the default background images included with Windows are located in the folders in the C:\Windows\Web folder.
