  1. Windows background


    Hi, MicrosoftI use windows 10 and while trying to change my windows background, I found some photos that I didn't feel comfortable with. I accessed the lock screen folder and deleted the image folders but the images are still appearing on my background and I can't find them located anywhere on my PC. How do I get to delete the images from the background photos permanently?

    :)

  3. Background applications

    Hi Robert,

    We understand that you don't want some apps to run on the background of your computer. What we suggest is to
    control which apps are allowed to run in the background. To see which apps have permission, just follow the below steps:

    • Open the Start menu or Start screen and select “Settings.”
    • Click or tap the “Privacy” icon in the Settings.
    • Scroll down to the bottom of the list and select “Background apps.”
    • You’ll see a list of apps that have permission to run in the background with an “On/Off” toggle.
    Just bear in mind that, apps normally run in the background to update their live tiles, download new data, and receive notifications. If you want an app to continue performing these functions, you should allow it to continue running in
    the background.

    Feel free to update us with the results.

    Hi,

    Thank you for your response.

    Apologize for delay in reply.

    As a workaround, I suggest you to change the desktop background/ remove the desktop background and check.

    I suggest you to create a new user account and check if it fixes the issue. Refer to the steps below to create a new User Account:

    • Go to Settings.
    • Choose Accounts and then select Other User Accounts towards the left.
    • Select Add an Account.
    • Enter a user name and hit Next.
    • Click on Finish.
    • Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    • Check if issue persists.

    Please reply to us with the status of the issue.

    Thanks.
