  1. Windows Lock Screen Not Changing


    My lock screen will not allow me to change the photos! I have 5 "prechosen" pictures that show up in little buttons and then the browse button, and I can only use those 5 pictures. Which is aggravating because yes they are my photos but they aren't the ones that I want. What do I do? If I browse for one and choose it, it never loads. Just sits there with the spinning circle until I change it back to one of those 5. I have the newest windows program downloaded and have tried following the advice for it the lock screen won't change at all, I have even reset my laptop.

    :)
