    I used the app "Backgrounds" to find a background, and before I realized you could save it, I just set it as the background and couldn't find it again. I was wondering how I find where the file is so that I can save it just in case I change it and someday want to change it back or whatever other reason there could be. Anyone know?

    If you downloaded it with the browser then it should be in your sdcard/downloads folder. Who knows on the filename though. If you downloaded it through the app (i've never used it), it probably stores it in a directory the app created. I'd look for one just called 'backgrounds'.

    Unless you've used some of the tricks to hide folders from the gallery then you should be able to find it in the gallery which will tell you where it is.
