    Choosing pictures for desktop background from downloaded Microsoft themes


    I used to be able to see all the pictures in a downloaded theme and then select the ones I wanted in the slideshow. I don't seem to be able to do that anymore and would like to be able to select the ones I want or create my own from several themes and/or pictures from those themes.


    Anyone able to help me with this?

    :)

    Desktop Background Picture resets on restart to unsaved theme

    Steps I take on new Windows 10 machine that only has Office 365 E3 installed (All four of the last machines I've set up have same issue, new HP Probooks).

    1. Right click desktop, choose personalize

    2. Choose Picture from Background dropdown

    3. Browse to Pictures and choose picture for background

    4. Click Themes on Settings page, then Theme settings

    5. Save newly created picture theme under "My Themes"

    6. Check to make sure it shows on Desktop Background.

    7. Restart machine.

    On restart the Background is solid color black again and in My Themes there is a newly created unsaved theme. Every. Time. It doesn't matter if I choose a default picture that came with the machine or one of my own. The Theme and Background will always
    reset on restart.

    I even just tested this trying to use a Window Default Theme. That one won't stick either on restart. It continues to go back to an Unsaved Theme with solid black background.
