    Background Files

    I have a favorite background file that I use in all my folders. It is one that came with the computer and it's called Sandstone.bmp It's gone now, I ran a search on Sandstone and Sandstone.bmp, I went to the WINDOWS folder where it would normally be. But it wasn't there. Anyone know where I could maybe download it?

    No, if it helps I'm using Windows ME. That might, because I don't know what background files come with other computers. I'll attach a screenshot of a folder with it (without the icons etc.)

    why don't you just go into paint, crop out part of that screenshot, and save it as sandstone.bmp ?
