We had a computer sent to us from Headquarters. It has the company wallpaper I would take to take off of it and put on our domain. (We were just recently merged)

Where is the wallpaper for the current one displaying located at? Is it some temp folder possibly?

I went to c:\windows\web\wallpaper and only found the default wallpapers, not the current custom one showing.

Are you refering to the Desktop Background?

If so then this can just be a picture anywhere on the PC.

Right-Click Desktop.

Go to Properties.

Desktop and you can Browse for a picture.

See the name of the file used and then do a search on the PC for that file / pic.
