    Windows spotlight and background apps problem


    The lock screen cannot change the wallpaper very long time. I go to the setting -> personalization -> lock screen and set the "windows spotlight" in the background. However, it still shows blank every time when I enter the personalization page.


    Secondly, when I enter setting -> privacy -> background apps, it is unexpectedly quit every time.


    Please fix up these two problems.

    :)

  3. welcome screen is not asking if i like the spotlight choice

    Hi,

    One of the possible reasons why your laptop is not asking if you like the spotlight choice might be because the Windows spotlight is not set as your lock screen background. To address this concern, we suggest enabling Windows spotlight as your lock screen
    background. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Go to Settings.
    • Click on Personalization and then select Lock screen.
    • Under Background, click on the drop down menu and make sure to click on Windows spotlight.

    If further assistance is needed, don't hesitate to reply on this thread.

    windows spotlight

    Hi Leland,

    Windows Spotlight is a nifty feature in Windows 10. It can downloads pictures and advertisements from Bing and then displays them on your lock screen. Besides, you can mark whether you wish to see more or less images of a similar type.

    To sort out your concern, simply follow the steps provided below:

    • Go to privacy settings:
    • Background apps turn on
    • For spottlight setting app must be on.
    • You can now use spottlight in personalisation tab.

    We also suggest to re-register your Windows Spotlight by following the steps provided by
    Kapil Arya MVP on this
    link
    .

    Should you need further information, don't hesitate to contact us.

    Regards.
