I did "Set as wallpaper" on *that* copy of the image. But even still, Windows looks in C:\WINDOWS\Web\Wallpapers\ when generating that list of wallpapers, so it should see them regardless.
I tried moving the images to just C:\WINDOWS\, but they still don't show up. However, putting a *.bmp image in C:\WINDOWS\ makes it show up just fine in the Desktop background list. I'm confused. Doing exactly what I am doing works fine on my desktop, but for some reason refuses to work on this laptop.
