    Dearest BobSagetFullHouse - So glad I found this thread. I noticed on my laptop, Toshiba, Windows 10, there was a spotlight lock screen picture of trees, lots and lots of tree stumps standing close together surrounded by their greenery, twisted branches, gorgeous, lovely, and I couldn't blink before it disappeared to another picture. I did much research, copied the files in the User/AppData/Local/Packages/MWContentMgr/LocalStates/Assets, etc, and other pictures currently being used were there, but not my trees!! <insert unhappy face here> I was hoping, dear kind sire, you could do the same magic you did previously for caphe and produce (how DID you do that??) that shot? Or, let me know where else in my magic machine those photos might be hiding? With kindness and respect forever, Lady Annne

    I found the Assets folder and all of the files had long names but no extension. I just copied all of them over 100kb to a temp folder and add the jpg extension. Some of the pictures I was looking for were there...thanks guys.

    Doesn't Work?

    I tried just adding .jpg to the end of the files as well as renaming them, but nothing seems to fall for the 'ol extension rename trick, so I'm lost as to how this is working for everyone else.... here's the one I'm trying to find.Click image for larger version.

    Lock Screen Image

    caphe said: View Post
    Hello all,
    Thanks so much, I was able to find these hidden pictures! However, a week ago, the lock screen was a truly dynamic one that I really wanted, and I looked all over Microsoft's website and did an image search and could not locate it. I didn't know about the above method until now. I did it, and it worked - but it looks like that folder of pictures has changed sometime in the past week? The picture that I really, really wanted is not there (and neither is the lock screen picture that switched it out a few days ago).

    I tried to restart my computer to see if a new lock screen folder would download but it did not work. Below is a copy of the picture. Please help?

    Caphe, typically Windows will stretch the image by default (automatically) but you can go into "Personalize" via the Control Panel or, just right clicking on an empty space on your desktop, and in the menu that displays at the bottom of that menu choose "Personalize". The next displayed Window will have choices on the left. Click on "Background".
    Now, on the right side you will see an example picture. Just below that you will see the word. "Background"and just below that you will see a drop down menu indicated by a rectangle box with an arrow on the right. It lists 3 choices.

    Now, look to the bottom, you might have to pull the border of that window down or, scroll down but you will see "Choose a fit".
    There is another rectangle box below those words. Click on it and it will show you choices. Select "Stretch" . Close the Window and you're done.

    Windows spotlight under the lock screen settings set a picture for me that I'd like to make permanent. Unfortunately it will change when the new windows spotlight picture is sent out. Does anybody know the save location of this image file so I can set it as my permanent lock screen picture?
