After installation, and for a few days, Windows 10 starts by asking you if you like a series of images that appear when you start the computer, then, based on your opinion, a selection of these images keep "welcoming" you. I'd like to know where these images are saved (and how, if it's a database or a change of format-extension).

I might want some of them, I might want to add a few of my own.

Does anybody know the path to these images (or database)? Is there documentation or options in Windows 10 to treat them?

    You're quite right :). I think they only appear if you select "Yes, I want to contribute..." to one of those feedback programs. But I do like the pictures (hope they don't use 'em against me). – Ignorante Sep 3 '15 at 18:15

    IMHO the question is ok. But it might be that the answer is already available on Google and you just didn't do much research. – Thomas Weller Sep 3 '15 at 19:18

    @Ignorante I think it is a great question. I just had the same question, and your answer was great. Have an upvote! – Zero3 Apr 29 '16 at 13:01

Thanks to Anant Milk now I know this is called the Lock Screen. Knowing that, I found the answer in google: http://www.tenforums.com/customization/5428-windows-spotlight-lock-screen-image-location.html

The path to the images in Lock Screen (and some others used by the system) is

C:\Users\{your name}\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_cw5n1h2txy‌​ewy\LocalState\Assets 

Rename extensions to jpg and you can get them.
