Bing Desktop used to store images at C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Microsoft\BingDesktop\themes\. After the latest update to 1.3.395 the images are no longer stored there.

Did anyone find the new location?

  • A secret to finding them, is Picasa. It searches the entire PC for pictures when you install or change settings. – user446502 May 9 '15 at 13:19

I got same problem. Solution

If you have Picasa, then:

Start it and search for image and when find it right-click and select "Locate on Disk"

If you don't have Picasa, then:

  1. Download Folder Change View
  2. Before starting Bing, run Folder Change View and select Drive C for monitoring
  3. Now start Bing and now every wallpaper that is saved on your pc, will be show here

Bing Desktop 1.3.328.0 on 12/07/17


Looks like only the last 8 are there, maybe they are being pruned.


If you search for Bing with Windows 10 Explorer, it will only find a link (.lnk)

If you use 'Free Commander':

  • use special folder shortcuts to got to 'local'
  • search for 'Bing' from here
  • it will find the 'Bing' folder and you can open the folder

There is a Bing themes folder here:

  • (C:\Users\%MYNAME%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\BingDesktop)
