Where Was The Windows Lock Screen Photo Taken?

KB ID 0001775


I’m using Windows 11 here (where its easier to tell!) But ever Since Windows 10 (build 1607) you have been able to get that information on the Lock Screen itself.

Lock Screen Location

On the screen locate ‘Like the image that you see‘, or ‘Like what you see‘ on Windows 10, and It will tell you the photo subject.

Where Does Windows Keep the Lock Screen Pictures?

They are stored at, (Note: substitute you own user name!)

C: > Users > USER-NAME > AppData > Local > Packages > Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_cw5n1h2txyewy > LocalState > Assets

However they will not appear as images.

What you need to do is take a copy of the file in question and add a .JPG extension to it, like so.
