    However, if you right click somewhere on the screen and select "Personalize" from the drop down screen, you should then get to a screen with a menu on the left. Click on "Lock Screen." Under the preview picture, change the setting from "Windows Spotlight" to "Picture." Then switch it back to "Windows Spotlight". If you don't recognize the picture in the Preview that pops up, then that means your Lock Screen folder has new pictures in it.

    I still didn't get the pic I wanted (bobsagetfullhou did find it for me though, thanks again!) but that folder had a new batch of pretty pictures in it.
    I figured the images refreshed at a rate determined by MS but you may have a point.
    You may also be able to speed up the process by locking your screen and choosing the first option below the link, if it appears on your screen.

    You can also navigate to the same by typing shell:appsfolder in a Run box and choose 'Windows Default Lock Screen' App

    I was interested by your instructions on the pictures used by the spotlight collection. How do you add to it yourself? That folder does not store them in a jpg format.

    You just add a .jpg to the end of it and you're set.

    Thanks, bobsagetfullhou. Will the system be able to work with it? All the other files are unusually long names with no extension.

    The folder won't accept items you put into it but, if you delete the ones in there, you'll get new ones faster.

    Do you know where the sign-in screen picture is saved? I have a computer that just upgraded and we can't find the original pic, but the sign-in screen carried it over, and we want to grab it and save it in the pictures library.
    Thanks!

    I was led to believe it's in C:\Windows\SystemResources\Windows.UI.Logon in the form of a compiled resource file, (.pri)

    Where can I find the location of the cached pictures for the lock screen? It is storing previously used pictures somewhere.
