I've tried everything. My power and sleep settings for screen is "never" for plugged in and battery power. They are also never for sleep. My screensaver is also turned off. Sometimes, even if my mouse if moving it goes to the lock screen. If I try to watch a video or have a Zoom meeting, it goes to lock screen after a bit. It is insanely annoying a

    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.
