I'm wondering where does Windows store Bing Dynamic Theme's wallpapers? Or for that matter any other rss themes?

C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\Best of B\DesktopBackground I think they are here. –  avirk Apr 14 '12 at 12:27

Go to Personalization -> Desktop Background, and you should see the location right above the pictures themselves. In my case, it's:
%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Enclosure\{some-guid}

Well, it's weird! Mine says the same thing but when I follow the path, the folder named Enclosure does not exists! –  Hamed Momeni Apr 14 '12 at 11:13

@WalkingMan Okay, try this. When you downloaded the theme, an RSS feed was added to IE. This feed checks for new wallpapers and downloads them. So open IE, open the Favorites panel, click on Feeds and find the feed for the Bing theme (the name should be an URL starting with themeserver.microsoft.com). Right-click on the feed and select Properties. Make sure that "Automatically download attached files" is checked, and click on "View files". This should open the location where the images are downloaded. –  Indrek Apr 15 '12 at 13:44

Oh sorry, I forgot to mention it here. The path mentioned above actually does exist but Windows doesn't display it no matter what you do. You just have to type the address in address bar to get there. –  Hamed Momeni Apr 15 '12 at 14:22
