background photo

I have a user who has a background picture he wants to save but has no idea where he downloaded of saved the photo. How could I search to see where the photo is located on the drive. I have looked in pictures, saved pictures and in the desktop under customize it doe not give the location of the file? This is windows 10 home version and I am going to re-image the laptop back to windows 7 pro to allow him to finally use the laptop as it was before someone upgraded it.

Look in the Downloads folder. That is the default location for Windows 10 downloads.  Start there.

Not enough information to confirm an answer.
Well, there clearly is an answer, because Dennis said, "found it." Now the question is, where did he find it? In the Downloads folder, as John suggested? Or in the Themes folder, as Shaun suggested? If so, one of them deserves credit. If not, Dennis should post where he found it and that should be marked as the answer, since there is, indeed, an answer to this question. Regards, Joe

Sorry guys and gals. I was in the hospital again now with the flu and just forgot I asked this question. It was answered in a very quick time but between work and sickness I just forgot to answer. I am sorry.

his is another one I missed but I can claim the hospital for this one. I was there for almost 2 weeks so I had to re-boot my brain.
