Where is my wallet.dat file in Windows 10 ? I tried looking in program files and I see a folder called bitcoin qt 64 bit and I don't see any wallet.dat there. By the way my wallet is not fully synchronized, just misses about 12 weeks to have the full bitcoin core 0.12.1 running.

It is in the data directory: C:\Users\YOUR USER\AppData\Roaming\Bitcoin. YOUR USER is your username.

%APPDATA%/Bitcoin if you want something that you can simply copy and paste in your file explorer.
Make sure it's fully synchronized before doing any transactions or checking balances.

Even if your wallet is not fully synchronized, you can find the wallet.dat at the place where the members above me pointed you. Did you find it?

I don't know if you want to move your coins, backup your wallet or just find location of wallet.dat
But if you just want that single "wallet.dat" file then you can create and export it a copy of it directly from Bitcoin Core.

File->Backup Wallet-> and then Choose Name and Location for wallet.dat file

If you are not experienced user and most are not, just use minimalist wallet like electrum! no need to back up keys, its way more secure to write down "seed words" on paper which can recover your wallet anytime!!

also synchronization is way faster, a few minutes from the start!
