This question already has an answer here:

Given a Windows 7 Mutiple wallpaper setup. I'm talking about hundreds of wallpapers in a folder.

Wallpapers on my desktop change every 5 minutes.

Sometimes I see a wallpaper that I want to delete, because it's low quality. To get its filename, I tried right-clicking the desktop, then click "Personalize". However, it only shows you the selected Wallpaper Set, not the specific filename of the currently-displayed wallpaper.

Is there another way to get the filename of the currently-displayed Wallpaper?
