    Try looking for TranscodedWallpaper at these 2 places:
    C:\Users\Your Name Here\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Themes

    C:\Users\Your Name Here\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes

    An easier way would be to go to this tutorial: Desktop Background shortcut - Create in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums and download the shortcut and then you can access the wallpaper and copy it to desktop, then move it to the folder you wish,. I say copy to desktop because if you choose to pictures folder, it will move it and then you lose it from the background file.

    Thanks very much,,,,I got what I wanted very easy from reading what you sent and it was apparent that it was in the
    AppData folder ,which is hidden and can be un hidden if one types in the start %appdata% (with the percent signs.
    And then you should be in the roaming folder. Thanks Again.
