Windows 7: Which folder stores background images?

Which folder stores background images?

I'd like to add my own images to the changing desktop background.
I don't think I need to do a full Theme(pack).
I hope I can simply pop my images into a specific folder.
Please tell me in which folder they are stored.
Thanks,

Hello Anykey,

The default folder that Windows 7 uses is at C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper, but you can select to use any folder that you like that contains the images that you want to use instead. You can see more about this in this tutorial below.

Hope this helps,
