  1. How to turn off AI images from Windows Spotlight lock screen?


    So, when I opened my computer this morning, I was greeted by a weird picture that looked like a combination of Monument valley in Arizona mixed with non-arizonan trees and the whole image was just kinda fuzzy, but when I went to look where it was from, it was AI generated. I hit not a fan, so I don't have a screenshot, but how do I prevent AI images from appearing in the windows spotlight on the lock screen?

    :)

  2. How to fix problems with lock screen images (Windows Spotlight)

    This Windows 10 Tip
    highlights the Windows Spotlight setting, which automatically uploads beautiful images of scenery daily from around the world for the background on the lock screen.

    What steps should I try if I’m having trouble with Windows Spotlight?
    For example, what should I do if:

    • The Windows Spotlight image doesn’t appear on the lock screen.
    • The Windows Spotlight image doesn’t appear on the sign-in screen.
    • The Windows Spotlight option doesn’t appear in my lock screen settings.
    • The Windows Spotlight image isn’t changing. (It shows the same image every day.)

    Windows spotlight images (Lock screen)

    This is really dumb, but if you are like me and use spotlight for your windows lock screen images, I actually tend to like some of them alot. They rotate it seems every few days but it doesn't seem to delete them as often as it gets new ones.

    With that said I couldnt find anything similar online so I made a script that would pull the files from the folder buried in app data that keeps the files. They dont have an extension normally so I append the JPG extension too them.

    I create a folder on your desktop called spotlight and copy the files too it then run the conversion.

    I didn't spend forever on this so be nice but otherwise;

    Enjoy

    Windows spotlight images (Lock screen)

    I updated this to fix an issue where images already in the folder would be swapped back to no extension making them unreadable again.

    CODE:
    Spoiler Code: @Echo off title Spotlight Image Converter v2 cls :checkPrivileges :: Check for Admin by accessing protected stuff. This calls net(#).exe and can stall if we don't kill it later.
