    Windows 10 Lockscreen is just.. black..


    Since a day I have the following scenario:
    When I lock the screen, a black screen comes up.. and after about 10 - 15 seconds the login screen comes back up.
    I tried to switch to background image instead of the Windows Spotlight, but that didn't make a difference at all.
    Clicking or typing (when the black screen is on) doesn't help anything to get to the login screen either... *Huh

    Anyone any idea what I can do to solve this -strange- issue?

    (I know it's vague.. but that's all I have for now... The only thing different from yesterday is that I installed an old game (1999) with windows 98/me compability (the installer.. that's it).. but I doubt if that would have consequences for the lockscreen..)

    :)

  2. Lock screen settings won't change, no error message.

    Thank you for the detailed response zdzdz, I'm glad it worked for you.

    I tried the steps you listed and it didn't fix it for me. It did remove all my existing lockscreen images, so now I just have a black screen as the lockscreen. I can't even change this black lockscreen back to the picture slideshow now. Gaaahh Windows.

    My lockscreen is also affected, not showing any images but just showing a black screen with no images.
