    Hi,

    If you haven't tried these steps, i will recommend you to please try them once.

    * Press Windows + S to launch the search bar of your start menu. Type “settings” in the dialogue box and open the first result.

    * Once in the settings, select the heading of “Personalize”.

    * Now select Lock Screen from the navigation panel.

    * Now select “Picture” from the drop-down menu under the lock screen settings and wait for the picture to be reviewed properly.

    * Navigate back to settings and then come back to the lock screen settings.

    *Click on the drop-down once again and select Windows Spotlight. Wait a few seconds for the picture to be previewed completely in the preview window.

    * Exit the settings and restart your computer. Check if spotlight starts working again. *You need a working internet connection for Windows to download pictures.

    Please let me know, if that helps.

    Kind Regards:

    Engr. Malik Yasir

    It wouldn't surprise me it they did that in the early releases. It's one way to guarantee feedback on that feature.

    Microsoft “Locks” the Start Menu in Windows 9 Preview...

    If the article is correct, it indicates MS has no confidence in their new Start Menu design.

    What is the point of the beta, if all of the new stuff is locked?

    Does not bode well. *Sad

    I'm fine with them locking things now, as long as I have choices when the final version goes live. On the plus side, somebody is likely already trying to cheat the lock or has already figured out how to toggle it off. The answer to "What is the point of the beta" all depends on who you ask, Microsoft or the consumer. *Wink

    Later this month it will not be locked. It's locked right now so that partners with previews or those with leaked versions (at this moment) can not spread screenshots of the Start Menu.

    Post titled "Not Good"?

    A rather negative connotation. I take it you don't like MS nor their products much.

    "If the article is correct" is a big IF, especially coming from this site.

    If anything MS via Ballmer and Sinofsky were too confident with the release of 8. Not exactly a warm welcome to the drastic changes made. In hindsight they should have market-researched it better and at least released it with the option to boot to desktop such as in 8.1. They're both down the road and MS has moved on. On the plus side they were the backbone of creating 7.

    Perhaps the feature isn't ready yet, either by incomplete writing or premarket analysis design. So as not to make a mistake again, perhaps they'll release it via an update when it is. After all, it is beta.

    Perhaps I missed it, but no where in the article does it state "all of the new stuff is locked". A rather "sensational" statement to make just as presented in a lot of these types of articles.

    The big > IF the article is true, then the Start Screen must be included again. That's a good thing. *Smile

    Well to be fair, I don't know if that's correct *Smile but that's how I read the article.
