    Login Screen Wallpapers Where are They?


    I like the new wallpapers that show up on the login screen but where are they? I would like to set them as my background for my desktop.

    I could not make those instructions work, either. Could you share how you made it work, burrina?

    This is easier:

    Create a new folder on your desktop, name it Pics,
    paste the following code into an Administrative Power Shell and press Enter,
    wait for the command to finish then close the Power Shell, check inside the created Pics folder.

    Code:
    Get-ChildItem -Path $env:localappdata\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\Assets | Copy-Item -dest {"$home\desktop\pics\" + $_.BaseName + ($i++) +".jpg" }
    Copy the ones you wish to keep to your Wallpaper folder, rename them and delete the rest.
    You can repeat this process from time to time if you see new Spotlight Lock Screen images appear on your machine.

    (Props to @CmdrKeene and others for this trick)

    I'm sorry, but I don't know what an Administrative Power Shell is. :-(

    Okay, I got a bunch of pictures (none of which I can see are the lock screen photos), but a bunch of them will not open. The window shows the file number and then says We can't open this file.

    Are you signed on to your PC as Administrator?

    You should see something similar to this:

    I should be. I'm the only one who uses it. How can I tell for sure?
