    Could someone tell me the location of the default wallpapers that come with Vista? Thanks.

    It depends which wallpaper you are looking for. Each section in the Location drop down box has a different folder. The "Windows Wallpapers" location is \windows\web\wallpaper. Click "Browse" after selecting one of the other locations to see where those files are stored.

    That's right. If you created a wallpaper - such as saving an image as wall paper though - you might find that image in the system32 file folder. I recall this happening to me. It may have been with Wins98 though.
