    Hey friends,

    I have a wallpaper that I made a while back and I lost all the originals. =(

    I still have it on my desktop (10.4.8) and I'm wondering if its stored somewhere in which I can get a copy?

    Thanks!

    I did. It must have changed the file name/type. I just hope its somewhere and not embedded hopelessly in to some file type.

    If you go to System Preferences --> Desktop & Screen Saver, and then go to the Desktop subpane, your desktop background should be displayed there with the filename (minus the extension) next to it. Does that help?

    Is there any way to remove the folder list in the Desktop Subpane ?

    I want to remove folder "12" because there's nothing there now.
    Thanks.

    Isn't there a Desktop cache somewhere? I think it's somewhere in username/Library

    Thanks very much. Found it under com.apple.desktop.plist.
