# Restoring deleted default wallpapers

If you have deleted wallpapers that come pre-installed with Wallpaper Engine, you can get them back by deleting a config file in your wallpaper_engine installation directory:

  1. Turn off Wallpaper Engine completely (right-click on it in the tray -> "Quit")

  2. Go to your Wallpaper Engine directory and delete a file called "visibility.json". The file can be found here by default:

  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\wallpaper_engine\projects\defaultprojects\visibility.json

If your Steam or Wallpaper Engine are installed in a different place / directory, the directory will be slightly different, but wallpaper_engine\projects\defaultprojects\visibility.json sub-directory is always the same.

  1. Once the file is deleted, start Wallpaper Engine again, you will have all default wallpapers back.


If you are unable to find the "visibility.json" file for some reason, you can also always just re-install Wallpaper Engine. This will also restore all default wallpapers but will require you to re-download all wallpapers which you can avoid by following the steps above.
