    Lock screen keeps changing itself back to Picture


    I like Windows Spotlight and I'd like to keep using it, but since some days ago my lock screen has a completely black background (no image, I suppose), and the lock screen is set to Picture. When I change it to Windows Spotlight and come back, it changed itself to Picture again.

    Below are three screenshots related to the problem.
    Screenshot #1, I change it to Windows Spotlight and leave the Settings: https://i.imgur.com/hwfgpcz.png
    Screenshot #2, when I come back it's set to Picture again: https://i.imgur.com/0APZGOn.png
    Screenshot #3, my current lock screen (all black): https://i.imgur.com/5UME0oo.png

    My Windows specifications:
    Edition: Windows 10 Enterprise Insider Preview
    Version: 2004
    OS build: 19587.1000
    Experience: Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.6201.0.0

    Lock Screen keeps changing

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Windows Spotlight picks the photos from Bing and displays them in the lock screen. I understand that you have set a picture and it is getting changed automatically.

    I suggest you to follow the steps to select the Picture that you want to be displayed on the lock screen. Please follow the steps mentioned below to set a Picture to lock screen:

    1. Press and hold Windows + I key on the keyboard to open settings.
    2. Click on Personalization.
    3. Click on Lock screen.
    4. Click on the drop down under Background and select
      Picture.
    5. Click on Browse and select the picture that you want to set.

    Hope it helps.

    Please reply with the status of the issue, we will be glad to help you further.
