The folder with these images should be found at- C:\images and/or C:\Users\Username\Pictures\images (or similar if Windows is on another drive).

Do I understand correctly that you want to know where to file the wallpaper ?

If yes, the answer is : it is up to you.
Personally, I created a " Wallpaper " folder under Pictures folder and store all my wallpaper pictures there.

When you download/copy a wallpaper, you click Save As > then you navigate to the folder of your choice > then you click Save.
