  1. My Wallpaper Randomly Changes


    My wallpaper randomly changes to images I've never seen! Slideshow is off, as well as sync. I also went into power and made it so slideshow was off on there as well. It will only change once though. It will never change the windows wallpaper, only the wallpaper I want to set it to. It also wont change the lock screen either.

    :)

  2. unable to change the lock screen Wallpaper.

    Hi,

    I appreciate if you could answer few questions to narrow down to the issue.


    • What is the exact issue that you are facing?

    • Are you facing issues while trying to change the lock screen Wallpaper?

    • Are you not able to choose the directory where the wallpapers has been saved?
    As an initial troubleshooting step, I suggest you to restart the computer and check if you are able to successfully change the lock screen wallpaper.


    • From Desktop, right click and select
      Personalize
      .

    • In Personalization window, click on
      Lock Screen
      in the left pane.

    • And choose wallpaper you would like to apply for the lock screen by choosing the browse option.

    • Close the Personalization window.
    If the issue still persists, please do reply with the required information. We will be glad to assist you.

  4. My Wallpaper Randomly Changes

    Win-10 themes keep changing

    Hi,

    Thank you for providing the information.

    • Did you try the steps suggested by Suvarna Govinda above, what was the result?
    As I understand the issue, Themes in Windows doesn't have the options to change on its own. Only the Wallpapers in the themes can change as selected ( Picture, Solid color and Slide Show ).

    I would suggest you to make us understand that if the Wallpapers are changing in Theme which you have selected.

    Below are the steps you can check if it helps.

    • Press Windows + I keys and select Personalization.
    • Select Theme and select the Default theme.
    • Select the Desktop Background below and select the Picture
      and save it and check.
    Please post us back if the issue resolves. We are glad to help you.
