    How to view folder containing desktop background image?

    If my desktop background image is a slideshow from my picture folders, is there a way to open the folder holding the particular picture from the desktop? I ask because sometimes a picture will pop up, and I'm not sure what folder it came from. It seems like in older windows versions you could right click on the desktop and select "open folder" or something and be taken to the folder holding the picture. Is that still possible?

    Hi dani07 and welcome to Eight Forums,
    It depends on how the theme settings are just right click in the desktop then click "Personalise" then highlight the theme you are using then click on "Desktop Backgrounds" in the upper down then you can see where the pictures are stored.
    Hope that helps.
