  1. Issues with the Windows Spotlight Feature


    Hello Everyone!

    This is Sagnik. I am a user of Dell Inspiron 3583. Also, I use Windows 10 version 2004.

    So my concern is that I used to have the Windows Spotlight feature set on my lock screen. It used to show brilliant images everyday without having me to do anything. But now I dont know why there is some glitch and it only shows me a blue screen i.e. the lock screen appears solid colour blue.


    Can anyone help me to recover that feature somehow again?

    Your Answer will be much appreciated


    Thanks & Regards

    Sagnik

    :)

    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.
