    How to fix Windows Spotlight Feature


    Hi

    I have been facing a problem with my windows spotlight features lately. The wallpaper on my Windows 10 Home OS does not change and is stuck on the same wallpaper for quite some time now. when I checked the directory where all those wallpapers are stored I find some type of icons instead of the actual windows wallpapers. there are some types of Game etc icons instead of the wallpapers and no wallpapers are to be found in the folder. I also rechecked to see if I have the wrong directory but no it was the right one. I also tried resetting Windows Spotlight but got the same icons back.

    :)

    Hi Leland,

    Windows Spotlight is a nifty feature in Windows 10. It can downloads pictures and advertisements from Bing and then displays them on your lock screen. Besides, you can mark whether you wish to see more or less images of a similar type.

    To sort out your concern, simply follow the steps provided below:

    • Go to privacy settings:
    • Background apps turn on
    • For spottlight setting app must be on.
    • You can now use spottlight in personalisation tab.

    We also suggest to re-register your Windows Spotlight by following the steps provided by

    Should you need further information, don't hesitate to contact us.

    Regards.
