    Wallpaper and Lock screen previews do not appear in the Settings app


    At first I thought this is only about Spotlight, because it also doesn't work properly, it stuck; but this is bigger than this. Settings app won't show the Wallpaper and Lock screen previews and also, Spotlight is stuck.
    I tried everything I found on the internet,

    • I've created a new account and it also got this problem
    • system scans, sfc - no luck
    • resetting settings app a few times
    • remove default image / settings files from system folders with guides (adding .bak etc.)
    • re-enabling Spotlight via some code on Powershell (even I do not think is is only about spotlight) didn't solve
    I was an insider, so I enabled insider updates and got the latest update and problem still exists. ( v2004 - Build 20257.1 )

    Anyone know something different?

  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.

    Thank you.
