Windows 10: How do I access the brilliant photographs that show briefly? Solved

    How do I access the brilliant photographs that show briefly?


    During Startup, WIN 10 displays some fantastic photographs, some of which I'd like to use as backgrounds.

    I know that they are on my PC but how do I find them?

    I have asked this question once before but the link I was given then does not work.

    Thanks.

    There is an excellent, free Store app, Splash, which uses a high quality photo database and lets you change the wallpaper as often as you wish. The best part, you can download any picture you like, with a couple clicks, to use later or to collect unlike Spotlight where you have to jump thru a few hoops.

    There's also a US$0.99 Windows Store app named SpotBright that grabs all the Windows Spotlight images and makes them easily accessible. I've been using it for 2-3 years now and find it quite helpful and useful. It makes the MS images available, and puts them in a directory named %SystemDrive%\Users\<Account-name>\Pictures\SpotBright, where <Account-name> is the folder name for the current logged-in account. I set this directory for my lockscreen images, and my wife uses it for her constantly rotating backgrounds as well as the lockscreens in slideshow fashion.
    HTH,
