  1. Win10 new install cannot stop from going to lock screen


    I'm running a background program and I want the PC to stay on ALL THE TIME! I've set, reset and reset the sleep & power settings to ensure Sleep NEVER and Hibernate NEVER etc, but every time I go check the status the PC is on the Lock Screen and my background app is stopped.


    What is set wrong that the sleep and power settings seem to be ignored?

    :)

  2. Lock Screen Image Too Big

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    • Is this issue occurs only when the pictures are set from OneDrive?

    I suggest you to set the picture for the lock screen using the default lock screen pictures and check whether the issue persist or not, follow the below steps to set the pictures.

    • Go to “settings” and click on “personalization”.
    • Under “lock screen” tab, select the option from the drop box as “picture”.
    • Then under “choose your picture” option, click on any picture and go to the lock screen, check whether the issue persists or not.

    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.

  3. Lock vs Login screen screenshot

    You can use your own image of any background and just go to settings/personalize/lock screen and click on browse as in the image below. It should make whatever picture you use as the Lock Screen

    Hi Subhadeep,

    Windows Spotlight is an option for the lock screen background that displays different background images and occasionally offers suggestions on the lock screen.
    To turn off Windows Spotlight, go to Settings, clickPersonalization,
    select Lock screen, under Background select a different lock screen background.

    To avoid messages on your lock screen, you can consider the following:

    • Make sure that the "Get fun facts, etc" on your Settings is turned off.
    • Disable “suggestions” that appear as notifications. To do so, follow these steps go to
      Settings, then select System, then click
      Notifications & actions
      and turnoff “Show me the Windows welcome experience after updates and occasionally when I sign in to highlight what’s new and
      suggested”.
    • Disable “tips, tricks, and suggestions”. Head to Settings then select
      System, then click Notifications & Actions and disable the “Get tips, tricks, and suggestions as you use Windows” option.

    Don't hesitate to reply on this thread if further assistance is needed.
