Save the Spotlight – Manually

So, you liked that image on your lock screen? That came from a system called Windows Spotlight, which doesn’t let you save the images at the time of writing this post.

For those who would like to save these pictures, read on.

For those who want to save pictures from the Windows Spotlight manually, you can find the files in your appdata\local\ folder.
The full path is usually C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\Assets. %username% varies from system to system.
The easiest way to find it is to press the Windows Key and the R key (bring up a Run command), and enter “%localappdata%\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\Assets” (without the quotes). The files in here have no file extensions, but if you copy them to another folder and rename them to end with “.jpg”, you’ll be able to view and keep the ones you like.


Or, you could always script it… I might just do that, actually.
