    My laptop Dell Windows 7 has an image onscreen of a page I copied withCanon scanner using MP Navigator EX 3.0. The image will not go waway even with restart. I do not know how or why this image is on the screen and it never happened before ever with any computer. I just scanned the page and it appeared on desktop underneath the icons.
    Does anyone know how I can remove this scanned image from my desktop as I have found no way. Thanks.

    Look for an X in the top right corner. IT may be at the top right corner of the photo or it may be at the top right corner of the computer screen.

    SOLVED........FINALLY GOT RID OF IT by R clicking desktop , selecting personalize, then Desktop Background then choosing black. Then the image was gone.

    Good job figuring that out. Somehow you set your desktop photo to a screen shot.

    Other than myself, you're the first person I've seen that has a black wallpaper. It makes things much easier to read. I come across so many that have a picture as their wallpaper, and you can barely make out the icons, let alone the text of the icons. Would you buy a book that had pictures on each page that makes it hard to read the words?

    Yup. Some screens are a disaster.

    A right click and selecting Refresh would do this.

    I will try that.. I have gotten away from learning how to do everything and began doing only what I want to do at the time. I see that Refresh is simple but never thought to or was afraid to try. Thanks for the tip.
