Windows 11 lock screen wallpaper (Windows: Interesting)

If you've selected Windows: interesting as your lock screen wallpaper in your personalization options, you might come across some really interesting photos (they're downloaded from Microsoft's servers) that you'll want to save. You can find them by going to the folder (copy and paste into your browser's address bar):

% LocalAppData% PackagesMicrosoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_cw5n1h2txyewyLocalStateAssets

In this folder you will find a lot of files without extension, but actually among them there are common JPEG photos that are used as lock screen wallpaper (be guided by the file size: the ones that occupy hundreds of Kb are the desired wallpapers), only you have to copy the file to a convenient location, add the jpeg extension and it will be a regular photo file.

If you want, you can use a bat file (how to create a bat file) with the following code to automatically save all lock screen wallpapers in the ImagesLockScreen folder and rename them to JPEG:

cd / D% userprofile% AppDataLocalPackagesMicrosoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_cw5n1h2txyewyLocalStateAssets mkdir "% userprofile% PicturesLockScreen" 1> nul 2> & 1 copy * "% userprofile% PicturesLockScreen * .jpg"
