    Lock screen is not changing spotlight image on startup


    The lock screen background image is not working properly on startup. I have the lock screen set to show the spotlight image. When it starts it uses the same image. If I click the Windows button and "L" to lock it it will show a spotlight image. my computer at work when I start up always shows a new image. How can I fix this? I have already done scans and deleted and replaced the images in the appdata/local/packages folder.

    :)

    Since I did the last big update (took 30-40 minutes on my notebook) the spotlight-image is also missing at boot.

    Thus I think Microsoft just disabled this feature and that's too bad.

    Hopefully Microsoft will give us the possibility to decide how spotlight should proceed with the boot-up screen.

    Lock screen is not changing spotlight image on startup

    The lock screen image is generated differently when a PC restarts or cold boots. For example, you don't see the various legends including 'Like what you see'. It is possible you will see a different image.

    It is not at all easy to fix matters related to this.

    Correct. It should be showing a new image each time I start the computer.

    Seems to be fixed. I thought it should change every time I restart. But its changing now. I created a second account. Then signed out and deleted that account.
