Where are Windows 7 wallpaper(s) stored.

Just about to do a clean install of Windows, and I want to backup the wallpaper I'm currently using.

Where is it?

Thanks.

Could be anywhere, depends on what wallpaper your using, Right click desktop-Personalize- Click Desktop Background at the top is where they are stored 'Picture Location'

Hope this Helps

The thing is... I, for some reason, deleted the Wallpaper once I set it as my Desktop Background.

So, If I go to picture location, it points me to where it was stored.

Hello,

I guess you could do a search for the Picture
Search in Windows 7 then switch to Thumb nail to spot it more easily

Hope this helps,
