    Unable to change desktop background image for my Windows 10


    I enabled RSS feed on internet explorer and eversince i'm unable my desktop background has changed to a solid colour. i am able to change to the solid colours but the images dont work both my personal images from my files and the windows default desktop images. My search led me to check type in %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\ in the search button at the start menu.

    However when I do this, I only see the file called 'CachedFiles' and when I open it, I only see a grey jpeg image file named

    "CachedImage_19

    20_1080_POSO.


    Can I get help to resolve this?
