  1. Lock screen photo is stuck

    The photo on my Windows 10 lock screen is stuck. I was changing as I responded whether I liked it or not, then one day it stopped.

    I tried this solution but it didn't work for me.

    Is there another solution?

    Submitting images to Spotlight Lock Screen Photos


    I am an avid nature lover and I have a travel bucket list. This list has grown as a result of seeing the photos on the Spotlight Lock Screen. I really appreciate the links they include to find out more about the location. It truly inspires me to want to
    visit these places one day.

    I have the good fortune to live in a beautiful country with truly picturesque locations that many people do not know about. I have explored numerous parts of Trinidad's Northern Range and wish others could behold its beauty.

    My question/thought/suggestion is:

    • How do they choose those images?
    • How can someone submit/suggest images to be included and shared with the rest of the Windows community?
    We shouldn't be selfish and I wish more persons could experience and witness my twin-island home of Trinidad and Tobago. I, or anyone else should be able to share that through the Windows Spotlight Lock Screen Photos!
