    I have been reading Windows ALL-IN-ONE for Dummies and want to get more information about the picture shoot location. The bottom of page 79, Technical Stuff, references "then click the Desktop Background link in the lower left corner. Hover the mouse over the picture to see its lineage" I am unable to find that link. Any help would be appreciated! thanks

    I believe where you want to go is
    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Personalization\Desktop Background

    Phil, I should have said from the location you mentioned. Still no link.

    Roderunner, Are you going to supply the beer and let the author/forum owner that I should "ditch the book and read more WSL topics" ?

    John, when you right click on your desktop, and select Personalization (just another way to get there as was Phil's suggestion), can you see at the very bottom of the Personalization screen the four links titled: Desktop Background ----- Color -------- Sounds ---------- Screen Saver that are written in blue just below their own icon? Each of these labels change to a link to click when you place your mouse on one of them.
