I am using Windows 10. I installed docker and pulled an image following this github https://github.com/floydhub/dl-docker

docker pull floydhub/dl-docker:cpu

Now I can't seem to find where this image is located if I want to delete it and download another copy. When I used a the VMware virtual machine there would be a specific folder with the name designated by me. So how do I look for the folder containing this docker image ?

windows systray -> docker for windows -> docker settings -> advanced -> disk image location

result, something like

C:\ProgramData\DockerDesktop\vm-data\DockerDesktop.vhdx enter image description here

    Settings look different for me: on the left there is just General, Resources, Docker Engine, Experimental Features and Kubernetes -

    Of course, the setting might differ for the particular configuration plus evolve with years, and the questions might need to be updated.

This thread might help. Essentially, according to Michael Friis, docker images are stored in the Hyper-VM and the Hyper-V VM harddrive itself is usually in C:\Users\Public\Documents\Hyper-V\Virtual hard disks.
