Hi Diane,

I think that's pretty strange too. 

Just in case, have you cleared out your own personal clipboard and rebooted your PC?

i don't know how the desktop picture would get in my clipboard but i will clear the clipboard and reboot.

just very unsettling.   when it happened once, i though i just hit a weird combination of strokes but twice........i don't think so.
