Somewhere on the net I found a poster named Rebel End. It is a bright colored painting of a pool table with a white haired man playing. The setting is hills all aroung the table with cars parked on the hills with their lights shinning down on the table. It is the background on my desktop but I don't have it saved any place else. If any one can tell me where to find it or how to save my background to a retreivable file I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

Well here is an Idea. Right click an empty area of your desktop/customize my desktop/screen saver. See what the name is and use the search for files and folders. It should find the picture your looking for. Then you can make a short cut or copy to your pictures or where ever you choose. Is it a still picture?

The file should be in your C:/Windows directory (or wherever you've got Windows installed). It should be a bitmap (.BMP)

Heater, I thought you would be around for a better explanation or a quicker way. My background pictures has both .bmp and .jpg photos.

This is right. Usually, if you do the "save picture as background" off of the internet, it gets saved as a bitmap file and placed in the Windows directory where all the other background picture files are located.

1. Your picture is from Ride the 9 Designs.
2. I'm guessing that when you came across this picture on the internet, you probably right clicked and chose "set as wallpaper". If that's what you did, then it should be located in your C: drive with the name Internet Explorer Wallpaper.bmp. I don't know which O/S you're using, just do a find for that name. Hope this helps!

Thanks to all that responded. I tried 9 Ball Girl's method first and it worked like a charm. I've got it saved in Documents, Briefcase, and on a disc. Thanks again.
