either edit your file extension list or move your picture to where ever you want and hilight the file by selecting it once withh left click. hold shift key and right click on picture file. you now have a new option called open with...

select this new option. select IE as program to open with. check box to always open with this program if you want. once the picture opens in IE right click set as desktop wallpaper/ background

If you have windows XP or Win2k it will be located under your current profile..for instance mine is

C:\Documents and Settings\valvarez\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Internet Explorer Wallpaper.bmp

It won't retain the actual photo name, but you can rename it. In order to see these files you must change the folder options. Go into the control panel and select Folder Options>View>then where is says Hidden files and folders select SHOW hidden files and folders..This will allow you to browse to the above path. Or you can always go back to the website you and download the image ;-)
