    I'm not sure since I don't have those, but you could search you C: drive for *.jpg to see if they show up in the search results. If they do, then right click on one, and click on "Open file location" to have it take you to them.

    Nope. I couldn't find them.
    PS: I switched from 'Windwos Default' to 'Slideshot' and then back to 'Windows Default' and I got a different picture:

    I don't get a different picture if I repet the process now though.

    @ Marron :
    They should be located at:

    C:\Users\{your moniker}\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.ContentDeliveryManager_xxxxxx....\LocalState\Assets

    (the xxxx..... will be random numbers/letters in the folder name.)
    they will look like blank paper icons because they don't have a file extension, just right click them and choose 'Open with' and choose Windows Photo Viewer.
    You could also Copy and Paste them into your Pictures folder then rename them with a .jpg extension.

    The images used for "Windows Default" option are in the C:\Windows\Web\Screen folder for me.

    That location is empty for me.

    From your first post: "PS: I'm talking about the desktop background pictures and the lock screen pictures" I showed you how to find where your background pictures where located. A program or something must have changed your default locations. You could try searching by file extensions.

    Try searching for .bmp, .png, .jpg, .jpeg, .jpe, .gif, .png .tif and .tiff and see if you can locate them.

    C:\Windows\Web\Screen seems to be for the 'Picture' option.
