    Lock Screen Image Location – On the PC


    Hello,



    After installing Windows 10 Pro (OEM) on a new PC build last June I selected one of my own photos to edit and use as my Lock Screen. It looks great, but I would like to edit it further. I can’t find it!



    HELP!!! I can see it in Settings > Personalize > Lock Screen but can’t get it to give up its secret location. When I hover over it nothing happens. When I right click on it, the thumbnail jiggles a little but doesn’t reveal any information – not even a file name.



    I’m not talking about “C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\SystemData\S-1-5-21-1561468695-878025909-126061477-1001\ReadOnly\LockScreen_A”. That’s where Windows puts the “in use” image. I should have put mine in with the defaults at “C:\Windows\Web\Screen” but didn’t.



    Any hints?



    And if I give up and put the properly edited one in with the defaults, how can I zap the thumbnail in Personalize of the one I can’t find?


    Thanks - Dave

    :)

    Hi Dennis,

    To find the location of Windows wallpaper images, we suggest following these steps:

    • Open File Explorer and navigate to C:\Windows\Web.
    • You'll find separate folders labeled Wallpaper and Screen.
    • Screen folder contains images for Windows 10 lock screen.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
