Windows Background image

Hi,
I somehow lost the actual file that I am using for my background image,
is it stored somewhere that I can go copy it and put it back in my pictures?
I would just search for it, but it was a download with a lot of numbers :/

thx,
Symp

I did look here,
C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows Photo Viewer
and it has my old one listed,
the one I am using is over a year old, so the previous one.. wow..

If you 'saved' it, it could be in your downloads.

Dude,
Thanks man..
it was in the **/themes folder..
life saver, I would have had hated to loose it..
as that directory only showed the one, I'm glad I didn't change it as I was about to when I noticed it wasn't in my pictures/wallpaper folder and said to myself.. don't do it!
heh..

thanks again,
symp

How to put image on desktop - Not a background image
How can I put an image on my desktop background? I don't want it to be the whole background - just a 400-pixel image on the desktop background. If possible, I would like to place it not in the center and to be able to choose which monitor to put it on. Windows 7 Pro 64-bit Thanks!
