Welcome to Seven Forums PDXWIN7. They should be saved in the same location, but when viewed from withing each individuals profile. I only have one user, but if I am wrong, hopefully someone will correct me.

Login as user A, navigate to C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper and you should find that users wallpapers

Login as user B, navigate to C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper and you should find that users wallpapers, etc.
