    When you set a wallpaper from a photo and then move the photo, the wallpaper still displays. This tells me there is a system copy created somewhere. I lost all the photos of my daughter recently, and would like to recover the photo I used as a wallpaper, but I don't know where the system copy is stored. I am using a Samsung Galaxy Core Prime with a non-functioning touch screen, so I only have access via the file explorer on my computer. Thank you!

    There's a file created, but it's not a copy of the photo. The phone has to be rooted to get at it. and you can't do that without a screen.

    In the future, keep backups of anything on the phone that's important - at least to a cloud account (Google Drive, Mega, etc.) and also to a PC if you have one.
