    IE wallpaper?

    Do you mean the image behind the toolbar buttons? Or the default homepage?
    Or maybe you mean the Windows desktop wallpaper?

    I mean the desktop wallpaper, which you can get from internet explorer, but just out of interest, where is the image behind the toolbar?

    Right click on your desktop, go to properties, and then desktop. You shoud find what you are looking for there.

    I know how to set the desktop, but where is the actual image file located for internet explorer wallpaper?

    Sorry I guess I don't understand. If you are looking for the location of the pics that come with Windows, look in C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper, or do a search for it. If you are looking for something you downloaded with Inernet Explorer, maybe look in My Pictures or My Documents, or wherever you specified? Sorry I can't be more help, I'm just not sure if I understand what you are looking for.

    This is where I found mine.
    C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer
    The only time you will find it is if it is in the wallpaper list. If it is not there do a search for "internet explorer wallpaper"

    I would also like to know where the image behind the toolbar is, if ya dont mind.
