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
  • Nope! It's not there either. – Hamed Momeni Apr 14 '12 at 13:49
  • I use a windows mobile I want to know location of image from the Bing wallpaper which comes. Phone is Lumia 800. – Registered User Jun 9 '14 at 1:51

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}

Edit: per the other answer, the path has been changed to:

I'm not using Windows 7 anymore myself, so I can't verify this.

  • 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
  • New path seems to be C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\BingDesktop\en-US\Apps\Wallpaper_<Some GUID>\VersionIndependent\images – Chris Smith Jan 29 '15 at 17:03
  • Yeah, new path -- see below. – jhclark Aug 10 '16 at 19:52
