    Spotlight not working


    Greetings ..

    After upgrading to 1903 Build 18362.116, the Spotlight function is not working. Display image is not refreshing. Any option where I can have the Spotlight back?

    Thanks.

    Spotlight

    Hi,

    Windows spotlight is an option for the lock screen background that displays different background images and occasionally offers suggestions on the lock screen. For us to better isolate your concern, we'd like to gather more information:

    • Is there a way for you to provide us a screenshot?
    • Have you made any recent changes before this issue occur?
    • Are you able to use spotlight before?

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you follow these steps to modify Lock screen background to spotlight:

    • Open Settings.
    • Click Personalization and select Lock screen.
    • Under Background, choose Windows spotlight.

    Keep us posted if you need additional help.

    Hi,

    One of the possible causes why Windows Spotlight is not working is due to a corrupted system file or user profile.

    • When did the issue happen?
    • Were there any changes made on your computer prior this issue?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?
    • Which version and build of Windows 10 are you using?
    • Can you please describe what issue with Windows Spotlight do you encounter? (ex:
      Windows Spotlight image is not changing)

    We will wait for your response.
