Can anyone tell me where is the file directory that all the default desktop
wallpaper picture files kept. I could not find them.
For example the Windows Xp Professional wallpaper.
Thank you.

Assuming you have a standard installation, the BMP tiles are in C:\Windows
and the 800x600 background JPGs are in C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper. Substitute
C:\Windows for your %systemroot% if necessary.
