    Desktop Background and Lock Screen Keep Changing

    Hi Christina,

    This is actually a setting in Groove music that you can turn off . . .

    In Groove Music click 'Settings' (gear icon)

    In the Display artist art section, turn off 'Set Now Playing artist as my wallpaper'

    That should do it!

    Display Artist Art in wallpaper and lockscreen

    I noticed settings in Groove "Display artist art - Set the Now Playing artist art as my lock screen" and "Display artist art - Set the Now Playing artist art as my wallpaper".

    I have enabled both, but nothing has changed on either lock screen or wallpaper. Checked under windows settings / personalization, no change there either.

    Does anyone know if this is working anywhere; if so, what do I need to do to get this running.

    Thanks in advance.

    Rob

    If you want to fetch the "GroovePaper" images while they are in place, in your native resolution, and save them to use at will, (personal use only!), at a later date, (although, the images usually aren't the greatest looking images); showing Hidden Files, Folders and Drives, navigate to C:\Users\{your name}\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\CachedFiles, and copy them to your Wallpaper folder.

    No CachedFiles folder here. Is it optional - or is location changing with versions (this is Insider version)

    Odd!
    Try the TranscodedWallpaper, copy it to the Desktop and give it an .png extension...

    Hey Shawn, something interesting.
    Remember how I said when I started using this wallpaper option it deleted all the artist information I had before?

    Well this morning I installed older .inf(10.1.1.42(z270 and older) instead of 10.1.1.45(z370)) files to get Catzilla to run as per doorules instructions(see here: Catzilla Benchmark - Page 21 - Windows 10 Forums ) now Groove has repopulated everything*Confused

    Interesting. You wouldn't think that would be related.
