    why is my Windows 10 Spotlight backgorund doing weird stuff on my lock-screen?


    Quite a few times already, i keep encountering a strange issue that my spotlight feature is doing on my lock screen.

    When i start up my computer, i'm normally greeted by a random pretty picture, as part of the spotlight feature. Like most of you, i'm given the option to 'like' the picture to continue seeing more like it.

    But sometimes, even after i like the picture, the image stays for quite a long time.

    Other times, after i like the picture, and step away from my pc until the next day, i'll open my computer and be greeted by the same image, but for some reason, i have the ability to 'like' the image again, even though i've done it already. Its like it didn't register that i had already liked it.

    It just happened to me yesterday. I got on, saw the spotlight picture, i liked it, did my work and got off the pc. Today when i woke the pc up, the image was still there, and i had the option to like it again. Really weird stuff...



    Has anyone else run into this, where it lets you 'like' the same image more than once?

  3. How to fix problems with lock screen images (Windows Spotlight)

    This Windows 10 Tip
    highlights the Windows Spotlight setting, which automatically uploads beautiful images of scenery daily from around the world for the background on the lock screen.

    What steps should I try if I’m having trouble with Windows Spotlight?
    For example, what should I do if:

    • The Windows Spotlight image doesn’t appear on the lock screen.
    • The Windows Spotlight image doesn’t appear on the sign-in screen.
    • The Windows Spotlight option doesn’t appear in my lock screen settings.
    • The Windows Spotlight image isn’t changing. (It shows the same image every day.)

    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.
