Where to find Lockscreen Spotlight images in Windows 10?

Windows Spotlight is a fancy feature which exists in Windows 10 November Update 1511. It downloads beautiful images from the Internet and shows them on your lock screen! So, every time you boot or lock Windows 10, you will see a new lovely image. However, Microsoft made the downloaded images hidden from the end user. Here is how you can find those images and use them as your wallpaper or somewhere else.
To get access to image files downloaded by the Windows Spotlight feature, follow the instructions below.
  1. Press Win + R shortcut keys together on the keyboard to open the Run dialog. Tip: See the complete list of Win key shortcuts available in Windows.
  2. Enter the following in the Run box:
    %localappdata%\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\Assets

    Press Enter
  3. A folder will be opened in File Explorer.
  4. Copy all the files you see to any folder you want. This PC\Pictures is suitable.
  5. Rename each file you copied to add a ".jpg" extension. You can do so by either selecting each file, and pressing F2, then Tab to quickly rename files.Or an even faster way would be to open a command prompt at the selected folder and type this command:
    Ren *.* *.jpg
You are done:
Alternatively, you can use Winaero Tweaker. A tool has been added to find your current lock screen image or grab the entire Spotlight image collection which Windows 10 has downloaded and stored on your drive. Unlike scripts you might be using for this, the tool doesn't collect "garbage" files like provisioned app icons and promoted app tiles. Also, it sorts images according to their screen orientation (Landscape and Portrait). You will find it under Tools\Find Lock Screen Images:
You can get the app here: Download Winaero Tweaker.

Explainer: The nico-teen brain

Explainer: The nico-teen brain The adolescent brain is especially vulnerable to the addictive effects of nicotine BY  TERESA SHIPLEY FELDHAUSEN 7:00AM, AUGUST 19, 2015 Nicotine (black triangle towards center left) tricks the nerve cell (neuron) into sending a message to release more dopamine (yellow dots). Those molecules enter the space (synapse) between one nerve cell and the next. When they get picked up by neighboring cells, this gives users a feel-good high. It also creates the risk of addiction and other health problems.  EMail Print Twitter Facebook Reddit Google+ NATIONAL INSTITUTE ON DRUG ABUSE, ADAPTED BY J. HIRSHFELD Nicotine is the addictive chemical in tobacco smoke and e-cigarette vapors. And doctors say the teenage brain is no place for it to end up.
