I have been trying to learn how to download & edit pictures to my PC.

Question, all the pictures that I download show up as choices for wallpaper. Is there any way to delete them as a wallpaper choice without deleting them from the "My Pictures Folder"?

(Windows XP home)

charles-dc, "Is there any way to delete them as a wallpaper choice without deleting them from the "My Pictures Folder"?"

The answer is No. What you can do is create a new folder and name it something like My Photos the move those picture files into that new folder. In the future any image files you download save them in that new My Photos folder and that way they won't appear as choices for Wallpaper.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
