How to save Windows 10 Spotlight Lock Screen Images on your PC

Step 1: Bring up the File Explorer on your Windows 10 PC and Click on the View tab from the top.

This PC -> Local Disk (C:) -> Users -> [Your Windows Username] -> AppData -> Local -> Packages -> Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_cw5n1h2txyewy -> Local State -> Assets. 


Now once you are in the Assets folder you’ll notice a lot of random files on your computer screen as shown in the above image and all of these have weird names. The next step is to sort them out and convert them into an image. Have a look at the steps below to see how it’s done.

Step 4: From all the random files in the Assets folder start selecting the files that have higher file size and copy them to a different location in your PC. Here we’ve selected all the files which were more than 100KB.
