    Can I extract current lock screen image?


    I currently have an image on my lock screen of Windows laptop which I unfortunately lost the original copy of, but a copy keeps showing up as an option for the lock screen.

    Can I extract this image somewhere in some folder? Perhaps a hidden folder somewhere?


    The photograph is special for me and I have tried a lot of options to try retrieve it with no luck. Can I extract current lock screen image? :(

    :)

  2. Lock Screen Image Too Big

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    • Is this issue occurs only when the pictures are set from OneDrive?

    I suggest you to set the picture for the lock screen using the default lock screen pictures and check whether the issue persist or not, follow the below steps to set the pictures.

    • Go to “settings” and click on “personalization”.
    • Under “lock screen” tab, select the option from the drop box as “picture”.
    • Then under “choose your picture” option, click on any picture and go to the lock screen, check whether the issue persists or not.

    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.

  4. Can I extract current lock screen image?

    Deleting and viewing user generated lock screen images

    You can select new lock screen images to have the old lock screen images fall of the history list. The current lock screen image will typically be used when Spotlight isn't running yet. For example, Spotlight currently requires a logged in user.
