  1. Why did my Windows Spotlight change to a blue screen?


    I used to get the random pics on sign-in screen, but a couple of days ago they stopped and were replaced with a blue screen. I have HP Pavilion x360 Convertible laptop Desktop PQJ1lBJ - Intel Core i3-6100U - CPU 2.30 GHz - 4 GB RAM - 64 bit - Wondows 10 Home. How do I get the random pics back?

    :)

    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.

  4. Why did my Windows Spotlight change to a blue screen?

    welcome screen is not asking if i like the spotlight choice

    Hi,

    One of the possible reasons why your laptop is not asking if you like the spotlight choice might be because the Windows spotlight is not set as your lock screen background. To address this concern, we suggest enabling Windows spotlight as your lock screen
    background. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Go to Settings.
    • Click on Personalization and then select Lock screen.
    • Under Background, click on the drop down menu and make sure to click on Windows spotlight.

    If further assistance is needed, don't hesitate to reply on this thread.
