Please excuse me for breaking in in this discussion...

I have the 'problem' that I get thousands of files listed in the background
selection window (via control panel / appearance and themes / change the
desktop background). This is probably because al my digital photographs
reside in My Pictures.

However, I have My Pictures organized pretty well with subfolders, actually
there is no single image in My Pictures, everything is stored in subfolders
like Adobe, Masters (where my digital photo 'negatives' live), Desktop (where
files live that are downsized and sharpened to serve as background image, so
these are the only files I would like to see listed) etc.

Kelly's quote gives me the impression that subfolders in My Pictures would
be a way to prevent all files from showing up in the background selection
window. If this impression is correct there is something wrong with my

Can someone please confirm that I interpret the quote correct?
And of course, if my interpretation is correct, how do I shoot this trouble?

Please ignore my above question, I opened a new topic with this question as
the current topic may be overdue ;-)
