    Windows 10 Default Pictures


    I don't know if I'm the only one or not, but I find the default pictures of Windows 10 quite amazing. So amazing in fact, that I want to use them in various other places, like, for example, on my other Windows 7 PC. Does anybody know their location ?

    PS: I'm talking about the desktop background pictures and the lock screen pictures.



    EDIT:
    Answer by @Brink. Background pictures located in C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper
    Answer by @Edwin. Lock Screen pictures located in 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.

    Thank you, but unfortunately, they are not all. For example, this one is not there:

    I don't have that image on my system. Are you sure it's not from one that you added?

    Do you have Bing Desktop installed by chance?

    I don't think I have Bing Desktop installed, but I'm sure I didn't install it myself.

    And no, I didn't add that picture, and it changed, and I didn't add the new one either.

    Right click on the desktop. Choose Personalize. Choose desktop backgrounds on the bottom toward the left. You should be able to see where the pics are located.

    The pics aren't there. Those are the Desktop Background images, not the lock screen images.
    I am interested of the location of this picture (other pics should be there too):
