  1. cannot change lock screen :((


    So this is just so weird. I cannot change my lock screen. I disabled the option in "Prevent changing Lock screen and Logon image". However, I cannot change from the "windows highlight" to anything else in the "lock screen" setting.

    It always shows a red notice: "some settings aren't available in high contrast mode". I dont even use high contrast mode. Then i found out that the high contrast setting is hidden from my control panel. Please help.

    Lock Screen keeps changing

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Windows Spotlight picks the photos from Bing and displays them in the lock screen. I understand that you have set a picture and it is getting changed automatically.

    I suggest you to follow the steps to select the Picture that you want to be displayed on the lock screen. Please follow the steps mentioned below to set a Picture to lock screen:

    1. Press and hold Windows + I key on the keyboard to open settings.
    2. Click on Personalization.
    3. Click on Lock screen.
    4. Click on the drop down under Background and select
      Picture.
    5. Click on Browse and select the picture that you want to set.

    Hope it helps.

    Please reply with the status of the issue, we will be glad to help you further.
