  1. Screen lock?


    Is there a way that I can lock my screen on my laptop so that people can use the program that's open but not close it and access personal info?
    I am using my laptop for music at a party and I would like to be able to leave Spotify open so people can play the music they like but not close the program or open a new one.
    I'm not sure if this makes sense, and if that is the case then please ask and I will explain it better.

  3. Lock vs Login screen screenshot

    You can use your own image of any background and just go to settings/personalize/lock screen and click on browse as in the image below. It should make whatever picture you use as the Lock Screen

    Lock Screen Image Too Big

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    • Is this issue occurs only when the pictures are set from OneDrive?

    I suggest you to set the picture for the lock screen using the default lock screen pictures and check whether the issue persist or not, follow the below steps to set the pictures.

    • Go to “settings” and click on “personalization”.
    • Under “lock screen” tab, select the option from the drop box as “picture”.
    • Then under “choose your picture” option, click on any picture and go to the lock screen, check whether the issue persists or not.

    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.
