  1. My lock screen and background keep reversing to the default settings


    After changing the lock screen to Windows Spotlight and the background to the picture of my choice, it always will eventually switch back to a microsoft picture in the background and the lock screen. My picture is still one of the options, but it doesn't remain selected. This has been going on since purchasing this computer 6 months ago.

    :)

  2. Login Screen Background keeps defaulting to stock image

    I've set a custom image on my lock screen to show up on the initial login screen whenever I first start up my computer. But occasionally, the login screen defaults to a stock landscape image that comes with Windows 10.

    To clarify, here are the steps I've taken:

    • Go into Settings -> Personalization -> Lock Screen
    • EDIT: Set image to Picture
    • Click Browse... to look for and select a picture
    • Turn on Show lock screen background picture on the sign-in screen.

    However, no matter how many times I retake these steps, the default login screen background occasionally
    comes back. How do I stop this from happening?

    UPDATE: I forgot to mention a step here in my initial post. I have already set the background to
    Picture, thus the custom image.

    Lock Screen Background

    Hi Jean,

    It's possible that you are updating the wrong configuration setting. The
    Background
    setting under Windows Settings > Personalization will update the background picture that will be shown on your desktop where icons are placed. Meanwhile, the
    Lock screen setting will update the background picture that will be shown when you are logging in to your device.

    To update your Lock scren setting, kindly follow these steps:

    1. Press the Windows key to launch the Start menu.
    2. Type in Lock screen settings in the search bar and press
      Enter
      .
    3. Under Background, make sure the it is set to Picture.
    4. Click the Browse button.
    5. Locate the picture that you want to set as lock screen background and click
      Choose picture
      .

    If you continue to have this issue even after performing the above steps, please reply to this thread. The system will notify me so I can get back to you and provide you more answers.
