    I have a google pixel 4a. So I downloaded a photo with my browser and set it as a background wallpaper. I then deleted the picture from both my browser downloads and also google photos. My question is where is this photo file since it is still my background. Once I change my background again I am going to want to delete the photo completely. I'm wondering where it is stored since it is still my background picture but I have deleted it from my browser and photos. Thanks.

    It's stored in an SQL database inside the contacts app until you replace it.

    Welcome to Android Central! It's in a protected system directory, so you wouldn't be able to access it with only a file manager unless you root the phone. Try an app like this: Get Current Wallpaper
