    Here's a trick, create a folder named "Pics" on your desktop then run this command in PowerShell. It will copy all the pictures over, add the .jpg extension for you all at once:

    Code:
    Get-ChildItem -Path $env:localappdata\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\Assets | Copy-Item -dest {"$home\desktop\pics\" + $_.BaseName + ($i++) +".jpg" }
    Click image for larger version.

    I have tried this and it won't let me copy and paste either of the 2 links in the instructions. What do I do now? There is one picture I really want to save, but I can't

    Hello ladyovr60,

    If you haven't already, see if you may be able to manually highlight the links without the arrow, then copy them.

    To paste them into the address bar, select everything in the address bar, right click, click on Paste, then press enter to apply.

    ladyovr60 ;Copy and paste this in a run command (Win+R)-

    %localappdata%\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\Assets

    and the Assets folder with the Spotlight pictures opens. All you'll have are file names with no extensions so you can't view and select. Sort files by size and copy anything over 25-50kb to a new folder on your desktop. Add .jpg to each file name to view in your preferred photo viewer.

    Brink and Mrgeek - I have done this. It won't let me copy and paste anything in file explorer address bar. It reads > Quick Access > and when I right click on the address bar it gives me the option of Copy address, copy address as text and a couple others but will not put the link in there. I need to find a way to work around that,


    MrGeek - your option worked! Now I just have to find the picture I want! Thanks! Kathy

    I see you have found another way to do what you want, but for future reference:
    If you first left-click on the Explorer address bar it will change from ' > Quick access > ' to just the highlighted words: 'Quick access'. You can then type or paste something else into the address bar.

    Just to clarify you should click on the icon, (in the case of the Quick Access the blue star ), to change between The "new" format which is read only and the older editable entry format

    You're welcome, at least there aren't a lot of pictures in there to sift through.

    As an alternative you can also use the free Dynamic Theme app to change and save spotlight pictures
