Windows 7: 7000 to 7068, saving pictures

7000 to 7068, saving pictures

So 7068 doesn't have all the backgrounds and user icons and such that 7000 had. Where are they on the computer? I'd lke to save them for use in later builds before I put on 7068, but I can't find where they're at.

I think it has the same images just lots extra. Anyway, you'll find the wallpapers in c:\windows\web\wallpapers, the themes in c:\windows\resouces\themes and the user images in c:\windows\winsxs & search for 'usertile'. This should help.

Don't forget the rep :)

Thanks! (and repped you both )

Orbital Shark, I can confirm the pictures in 7000 are not in 7068. I had an install of each side by side (well, remote desktopped) and went through all those folders. The pictures in 7000 were not in 7068, and there were some really nice pictures in 7000. I've attached 3 examples below which one of my users really loves to use with a yellow aero UI. (Never mind, not attaching the actual files since they're probably copyright. Going to just snipping tool a thumbnail of them.) Also my favorite user icon, the gold fish, is definitely missing in 7068.

Saving pics - other than in My Pictures
As an architect - I often need to save 100's of drawings every day. In the 'good old days' of XP (forgive me!!) it was very straightforward to save drawings in 'chronological' (as opposed to 'alphabetic') order, in any file, on any disc on my system. Also - as long as that file remained 'open'...
