    Possible I deleted my desktop photo, but still is on d/t?


    It's a phto I want and can not for the life of me find it in my photos folder. Is it possible I removed it from my pictures album yet still is on desktop? If so, is there any way to capture my desktop photo so I can have it again?

    Thanks!

    Have you tried looking into some of the folders close to the one you thought you placed the photo (i.e., Public Photos, Music, etc).

    Do you know its exact name ?

    or if it was a .jpg or .bmp or whatever ?

    You could search for it with File Explorer.
