  1. Win Spotlight-you say one thing and it does another!


    I am running Win 10 and have a complaint? about Spotlight. You say the picture changes daily, but when I click on "I like it" the picture does NOT cbange daily-or even weekly. The only way it changes for me is if I click on "not a fan". I don't want to do this because I like most of the photos. Why doesn't this change daily the way you say it does?

    :)

    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, have you ever removed Edge?

    Sometimes this might happen because there's a MS server issue. However, what you say above suggests something else may be amiss.

    N.B. after resetting Spotlight as Bree suggests, it may take several days (in my experience) before it starts working again.

    Please post a screenshot like this:
