    I was setting up my newly installed Windows 7 and made a mistake. I opened C: Program files>Widows sidebar>Gadjets>Clock gadget. Right clicked on the picture of a clock and wanted to click 'Preview' but by mistake clicked on 'Set as desktop background', which is just below 'Preview'. How can I remove this clock from my desktop background?
