    Personalization Screen


    Hello,
    On the Personalization settings screen, are 5 pictures to select one of them as desktop wallpaper.
    I want to delete / replace 2 of them but impossible - right click does not open any submenu.
    I tried to add (test) some picture, but the unwanted only moved 1 block fwd, then I added another, and the previous was only replaced. The unwanted is still one of the 5.
    Is it possible to delete one or two out of these 5 images, and how.
    I looked into windows folders, these images are not there.
    Answers will be appreciated.
    Thanks
    Motim

    The five images are there as a convenient shortcut to easily switch back to one you used earlier. You can choose any other image you want as your background picture. Just click the 'Browse' button just beneath the five pictures and find one. When you select one it will be added as the first of the five shortcut images, the rest will shift one place along and (what was) the last one will disappear from the list of five.

    @Bree: The same applies to the lockscreen, but browse is grayed out:



    Do you know why?

    @prikker, your screenshot shows the red 'some settings are managed by your organisation' message. This is normally due to a setting (in your case 'Browse' for a lock screen picture) being disabled in Group Policy or by modifying the registry. It is not greyed out for me, nor do I have the '...organisation..' message.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but those settings would have to be done by the user and not by default of the OS. That is, if those settings are changed, it was done because the user wanted them changed. Or am I missing something?

    And for the record nothing on my personalization screen was greyed out either.

    No, you are correct, but sometimes users try changing thing in the registry, then just forget about it because it didn't have the effect they intended - the 'managed by your organisation' message being an unintended consequence. Could be the case here.

    Agree. And that's what I figured happened.

    Thanks.
