    Right Click in Explorer Keeps locking up.


    I fixed this before by deleting values out of the registry but it keeps coming back!!

    I should have to keep editing the registry repeatedly to use Windows!!

    It doesn't matter if I click on a file or on the quick access folders. ANY RIGHT CLICK LOCKS IT UP.


    How can I fix this for good?

    :)

    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.
