  1. I saw a web photo I liked and clicked "set as desktop item" now I would like to

    remove it but after reading some instructions I found for XP I find that the "Web"

    tab does not appear amongst the tabs that are available after clicking "Display" in

    the "Control Panel". Can anyone advise me as to how to get rid of this image on

    my desktop?

    Change the Desktop background to whatever you want. Either choose one available in Display> Desktop or browse to My Pictures and choose one.

    Look in My Documents> My Pictures and you should find the image there. Right click> delete.

    The image does not appear in the desktop tab of "display". The image was save by right clicking a photo on a web page. After right clicking it said something about "do you want to make available offline" so i clicked yes and the photo appeared to the right side of my desktop but doe snot show in the desktop tab of display as I mentioned earlier. So I cant figure out how to delete it !
