    ok i just found where it stored the one i set to be my lock screen image

    ========
    The files are stored in C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows

    there you will find folders called LockScreen_A, LockScreen_B, etc. Each folder contains one of the lock screen images.

    Thanks for your reply.....Yeah ive tried searching for it again at that site but theres just too many pictures there........Im also wondering why none of the pictures there seem to have names ? there is a search feature but i dont know the name of tthe pic to search for.....

    I guess i will have to forget about this pic.....next time i will make sure i actually save the pic to a location......

    what i did last time was just click set as lock screen, so i dont think i actually downloaded it ?
