Where is the image captured in the virtual background stored on the computer?

Zoom allows you to capture an image from your computer and set it as a virtual background.
Where are the images captured on this computer-stored and can I copy and use them when Zoom is installed on another computer?


You can set the data imported from your computer to the virtual background of Zoom.

I’ve imported a lot of fashionable background images, but since I’ve renewed my computer, can I transfer the imported images to a new computer?

I received such a question.


First of all, where is the data captured in the virtual background stored?

It depends on the computer, but I will talk about it for Windows 10.


C: \ Users \ [user name] \ AppData \ Roaming \ Zoom \ data \ VirtualBkgnd_Custom

It’s quite deep.

The name is also a list of character strings like encryption, and extensions such as JPG, GIF, and PNG are not visible, and it feels like it is not an image.


However, I copied one of them to the desktop and renamed it … I added “.jpg” to the file name.

Then, the icon changed like an image.

When I double-clicked it to open it, the image set in the virtual background was displayed.

Everything that looked like code was an image.



So, if you copy these files to your new computer, can you use these images as a virtual background on your new computer?


I experimented with this.

The result … was no good!

Even if I copied it, it was not recognized as a virtual background on other computers.


So, if you change your computer, please set the virtual background one by one.


Also, if you find it difficult to find and collect images, you can change the file name of the long string in the folder above.

If you rename the image files such as 1.jpg, 2.jpg, 3.jpg, 4.jpg, 5.jpg, etc. and import them into the virtual background one by one, you can save the trouble of searching.
