    No, Microsoft.ContentDeliveryManager_* doesn't exist for me on 10041 (clean install Pro). I go from Microsoft.CloudExperienceHost to Microsoft.Cortana
    check here:

    C:\Users\{your moniker}\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_xxxxxx....\LocalState\Assets

    (the xxxxxx represents a long set of characters eg.: dc84637twxe333f......)

    they should look like this:

    Yes, 10 files (different names though). I can open them with paint (but not photos app) if I copy to desktop and stick .jpg on the end.

    Edit: They look like this:

    Bingo! That's the ones! It must be that I'm on Enterprise cuz my 'LocalState' folder is empty.

    No hiding stuff from you!! They'll have to do better than just dropping the .jpg extension and giving it a random name

    If you set your Lock Screen to Windows' defaults then go back to that folder from time to time, you'll get more. (some nice ones too!)

    Bearing in mind that security, in a test build, it not much of a priority, I , when I get stuck like that, open the security and change the ownership to "everyone", and then add it and give myself full permissions.

    It looks like the path I posted is a retainer folder only.

    I found Brink's 8.1 tutorial:

    Lock Screen Default Background Image - Change in Windows 8

    The program it links to is not compatible, but I worked through the manual method. 100%. ! I now have several of my own pictures as a choice.

    Annoying

    Getting access in 'SystemData' is tricky, you have to change permissions for yourself then go in again and add yourself as a 'Principle'

    The other folder: take ownership of all of them, copy them and paste them somewhere then add .jpg extensions to them then rename them if you wish.
    W10 refused to do it.
    W10 wouldn't perform the changes (enumeration error) even though I changed the:
    • Owner (tried Administrators, Users and myself)
    • Permissions to "Full Control" (Note: Administrators & Users were already set to that anyway)
    • Child Objects propagation

    The "broken" files were already jpgs.
    I copied one out of the location and tried to view it, but I received the same error message (invalid header).

    Can you post a screenshot of that location?
    Not without going back into LM17.1 (I'm in W7 at the moment).

    I'll try again later (if I remember).
    I'll also try the other location that you mentioned.

    I did that once in one of the W7 betas because "Trusted Installer" was working me over.
    It totally hosed the install.

    I tried setting the permission again and this time I succeeded, despite the constant barrage of error messages.
    It was even more of an ordeal than setting permissions in Linux.

    The "C:\<blah>\LocalState\Assets" location seems to be the right place.
    I can see the new Lock Screen picture (the one I replaced) and a couple of other interesting ones.

    After copying the images and adding the jpg extension:
