In Windows XP Home in Display Properties under Desktop, there is listed the images that can be used as a background for the desktop. As well as Windows default images, there are some that I have saved. The question is where about in my computer are these files stored? Any help would be appreciated.

Mine are in C:\windows\web\wallpaper, but yours may be elsewhere. Try using the search feature for one of the file names, like bliss.jpg.
