One of my friend asked me that he needs to copy the display picture he had in his MSN Messenger display. He has tried searching but could not located it. Here is some detail about MSN way of storing display pictures.
Please browse to the following path
%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Messenger
Here you will see folders against each email id that signed in to the msn messenger on that particular machine. Follow the steps to retrieve the display picture.
Browse to the desired email id whose DP you want to retrieve
Open ObjectStore and then open UserTile folder.
You’ll see some files in it with some weird names ending with either DT2 extension or ID2. (notice the file size of both files. the DT2 will be slightly larger than ID2).
The DT2 is actually that thumbnail of your display picture. You have to open it using any photo viewer software:
Right click on the file
A pop up will come up asking you to search for the desired program from internet or choose
Select on choose and then use any photo editing software
For basic users select “windows pictures and fax viewer”
Now you can save this picture at your favorite location.
