    you know, when you right click an image in IE, and say set as background, then in the desktop settings, it says Internet Explorer wallpaper...

    I need to know where that file that they're showing for a desktop background is,...

    Look in C:\Documents and Settings\~yourname~\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer

    should be listed as Internet Explorer Wallpaper.bmp

    Thats where the pre-installed XP desktops are stored.

    DoTheDew wants to know where the IE backgrounds are stored when you right click a page and select "set as background".
    They are stored here:

    C:\Documents and Settings\~yourname~\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer

    Ah yes you're right, I've just never set wallpapers/backgrounds that way.
