Windows Spotlight is a fairly new feature that is exclusively available on devices running Windows 10 that changes the lockscreen experience by displaying new images on a regular basis with options to leave feedback for each image displayed this way.
These wallpaper images are similar but not necessarily identical to the images that Microsoft displays on the startpage of its Bing search engine.
If you like those images, you may want to set them as the desktop background on your computer system as well and maybe even if you don't run Windows 10.
You have several options to download these images of which most are exclusive to devices running Windows 10.
The Windows Store Spotbright application
The application, available for mobile devices and PCs running Windows 10 can download all Spotlight pictures in a single operation.
All you need to do is the following to use it to download all Windows Spotlight photos to your system:
The manual method
If you cannot install the application or don't want to, you can still use a manual method to grab the pictures.
Good news is that Spotlight images are cached on the device running Windows 10 which means that you can access them in the cache location, or copy them from it to another location for safekeeping.
Download individual wallpapers directly
What if you don't run Windows 10? You may still download Windows Spotlight images to your device for use as wallpaper.
Someone has uploaded the majority of Spotlight images to Imgur from where they can be downloaded in all of their glory.
Head over to the site to browse the selection. You may download any image individually by right-clicking on it and selecting the save option afterwards.
Now You: Do you like those images?
