    deleting pictures from Windows Media Center

    Hi,

    Does anyone know how to delete pictures from Windows Media Center without
    deleting them from the entire computer? I can't seem to find a way, and I
    don't want to have the pictures there. help please?

    Move the photos into a folder not looked at by WMC.

    Well, like in WPhotoGallery, you tell WMC what folders to look for files
    in...
    In WMC, go to Settings - Library Setup - Stop watching folder
    This will show you all of the folders that WMC is looking into.
    If the photos you don't want seen are located in one of these folders, then
    uncheck it to stop looking there.
    If you have other photos in that folder that you want to see, then move the
    unwanted photos out of that folder to one that is not on the watched list.
