Windows 10: Lock screen image disappeared?

    Lock screen image disappeared?


    So when I first got this laptop in January, it came with Win10.

    I use high contrast all the time, and have installed various workaround extensions to help deal with my vision issues.

    Initially I used a workaround method I found on a forum to change my lock screen, even though it's in high contrast - which was to put the image I wanted into the web\screen folder and rename it. I did that.

    I had to reinstall Windows 10 due to a corrupted update file, and while my lock screen image is still the default, and even still visible in the lock screen customization screen when i'm in normal contrast - it's no longer in the web\screen folder, and I can't find it /anywhere/.

    Anyone have this issue? Also, I can't rename any of those files anymore to even begin to change it that way again.

    thanks in advance.

    You can find it in these folders:
    C:\Windows\Web\Screen
    C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\LockScreen_X
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Systemdata\???\ReadOnly

    And if that fail, you can read this
