    How To Remove Spotlight Circle On Welcome Screen


    Hi,
    I'm currently running windows 10 pro.64-bit - version 1803 build 17134.81 , on the computer I'm typing this post on. I really thought by now that the developer's of windows 10 would have provided a method to disable/delete the spotlight circle that's displayed on the welcome screen. I don't use/need the lock screen, so I already have it disabled. At least for me..I'd rather just see image that's displayed on the welcome screen without the circle. Thanks for any help provided.

    Windows Spotlight- pressed "like" instead of "dont like"

    Hi Villar,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft community.

    • Do you wants to change the lock screen picture?
    • Are you making these changes in the Microsoft account?

    I suggest you install any pending Windows updates on the pc to check if that helps. Updates are additions to software that can help prevent or fix problems, improve how your computer works, or enhance your computing experience.

    You can turn off the Windows Spotlight feature and then turning it back on and check



    Step 1: Right-click on the desktop and then click Personalize to open Personalization category of Settings.



    Step 2: Click Lock screen



    Step 3: Under Background section, select Picture or slideshow option from the drop-down box.



    Step 4: Press windows key + Lock.



    Step 5: login back again and follow the same steps from 1 to 3 and change back to Windows spotlight and check if it helps.

    Hope this information helps you. Kindly post back with the updated issue for further assistance.

    Thank you.
