    Where are the Background pictures located?

    I went to settings / personalization / background and browsed to change my background picture to one that I had on my hard drive.
    I was not satisfied so I went back to settings / personalization / background.
    The original picture that I wanted, was no longer there.

    The original 5 have been depleted by my 2 poor choices.
    Where are the original background pictures located so that I can restore my background?

    Hello JB, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    The default wallpapers are in the C:\Windows\Web folder.

    All the Windows default images are located in the folder c:\Windows\Web

    Just explore the subfolders Screen, Wallpaper & 4K
