    Hi Roland,How did you set your desktop background? If you set the default background with Windows Photo Viewer (for example), then Windows will save the background as a file in the location shown below. Note: Make sure your hidden files are shown to access the location below. C:\\Users\\<youruserloginnamegoeshere>\\AppData\\Roaming\\Microsoft\\Windows Photo Viewer
