You can also find all images on your hard drive by using the Search function in File Explorer (Windows Explorer in Windows 7).
Open File Explorer or Windows Explorer, and click Pictures on the left pane to view images saved by applications such as Paint and Internet Explorer. Select Downloads to find images saved by certain applications such as Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.
