  1. Lock Screen Background


    How can I stop the background picture, I want to keep on the lock screen background, from changing? I have the choices set to "picture", however, in the small boxes underneath the preview screen, not only is the picture I want to keep on the lock screen background shown in one of the boxes, there are other pictures in the remaining boxes shown under the preview screen. I did place one or two of the pictures there when I was deciding upon which picture I wanted to use. However, other pictures show up in the boxes and ultimately are rotated with the picture I do want kept on the lock screen. Bottom line: Please tell me how I can stop the pictures from rotating or changing out, and make the picture I do want to have on the lock screen background remain without changing unless I do it manually?

    Thank you, in advance, to anyone who attempts to help me solve this issue, especially for those of whom actually provide the correct information, and most especially for those of whom actually provide the correct information, but in the most simplified manner as possible, causing me limited stress when applying the appropriate steps to gain my desired results.
