Desktop backgrounds

I like the "desktop themes" photo I can get on line for windows 7. But don't want the Icons and extras that go with it. I have dual monitors and use Display Fusion ,I would like to get the desktop background photos in the themes and set them setup to 2 to a single desktop back ground. I don't know where the Desktop themes folder is on Windows 7. So I can go in and get the photos of the desktop themes. Anyone know ? thanks funnnyfarm

I don't know whether this will help you, but here's what I do:
Download a theme
change the extension to .CAB (it's actually a cabinet file)
Now using your extractor program of choice (I use 7-Zip which is free), extract.

After extraction, then I move any or all of the .jpg files to my massive backgroung selection.

What you do with them is your choice.
