    WIndows 8.1 lock screen wallpaper cache


    Hi there,

    I've recently applied a set of 3 different wallpapers. Now i've deleted the wallpapers but the wallpapers are still cached on my computer. I want to delete it but I cant find the location of the cached wallpaper.

    Can someone help me?

    (See the image and red lines)

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks.

    You're right, my mistake!
    Check in: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\SystemData\S-1-5-21-xxxx....\ReadOnly\LockScreen_A
    You need to change permissions for yourself.
