I can not figure out where the file paths are for the desktop background images.  Also, I am not completely sure how to control the desktop background image in Windows 10 Settings.  I hope some members will answer this and give advice about these.

Press the Windows key OS4o0pO.png and the I key to open Settings.

Click/tap on Personalizations.

Click/tap on Background.

You can change your desktop image by selecting one of the optional images seen under Browse.  You can also download image online and use them.

Keep on commenting, anyone who has useful comments.  The few so far here have been helpful.

 

The question occurred a few days ago when I connected a "smartphone" mobile device having a couple of snap-photos in its "Gallery", and transferred them (actually copied) to the Pictures folder of my Windows 10 laptop computer.  I took no other peculiar actions.  I turned off the mobile device, and then pulled out the connection cable.  Suddenly, one of the newly transferred snapshot photographs became THE DESKTOP BACKGROUND.  I was able to go to the computer's settings, and change the background back to what I already had since when bought the machine new and set up.  Still, the sudden occurance of the new background image was strange.  I had done such mobile to computer image/photo transfers before and no such crazy thing happened.
