  1. Media Controls on the Windows 10 Lock Screen


    How do I activate the media controls on my Windows 10 Lock Screen? My Lock Screen allows play music normally, but it no longer shows these media controls, as it did before an important Windows 10 update I don't remember if it was after version 1703, 1709, ... or 1809. The fact is that today I have Windows 10 Home Single Language in version 1909 and these controls only appear when the computer is unlocked, as shown in the image below. This problem occurs with Spotify, even when the "Show desktop overlay when using media keys" option is enabled. This problem also occurs with Groove Music and any other media player.

    I request help to view these media controls also on the Lock Screen.


    I use Kaspersky antivirus and my default internet browser is Microsoft Edge. Remembering that I already tried to change all the settings of the Lock Screen and I didn't see any option in that sense. My Lock Screen is configured to display Windows Highlights as the background.

    :)

    Hi

    go here - Hauppauge | Page Not Found select "Windows Media Center install" tab

    look at - Setting up your TV tuner in Windows 7 Media Center - select download (will open a pdf with screen by screen instructions)
    "Download
    Here is a screen by screen view of the setup of Windows Media Center. It was based on the WinTV-HVR-1600, but the setup with other WinTV-HVR products will be similar."

    Follow the guide stage by stage

    let the TPU community know at what "step" Media Center gets stuck at Example: step 1, step 2

    nb: It may be to do with your zip code and or post code not being entered

    In regard to your DVD Rom drive - go to -control panel/device manager/DVD/CD-ROM drives -make a note of the make and model number Example: Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-215D ATA Device - highlight the device you have installed -press right mouse button-select properties-details-property and select Install Date from the drop down list and let us know this.

    atb (all the best)

    Media Controls on the Windows 10 Lock Screen

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
