    Hello fireberd,

    If you like, the context menu added by the tutorial below can help you find the location of the current desktop background.

    Thanks Shawn. All that did was show the background file that was in Firefox. It didn't show any others (??)
    I still have it installed, I didn't remove it yet.

    However, it helped me find it. The Firefox location was in Roaming. I looked at others in Roaming and found it under Internet Explorer. I had looked at Roaming before but didn't look at the Internet Explorer as I use Edge.

    Fireberd, found it!


    Here's where my personal wallpaper images are stored on my Win10 machine:

    C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\RoamedThemeFiles\DesktopBackground

    Hope this helps, if you haven't already found out the answer elsewhere.
