Question about Desktop WallPaper

I make my own desktop wallpaper, and I change it every month so as to have a new calendar, but I was wondering where does the old wallpaper go, I have never actually deleted anything, I just "save as" desktop, so is that going on top of the old wallpaper, Im just concerned that there is going to be alot of unneccessary things stored there, and will slow down my pc. Thanks for any light anyone can shed on this question. Sandie

Where do you put the wallpaper after you make it?

Try checking here C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Themes

I just put it in a folder I named Desktop, than just click on the one I want to use and choose "set as desktop background".

The ones you "save as" will be in that AppData folder I pointed you to. They are probably not taking up very much room on your Disk drive 1 I have saved is 3.65 KB
