    Hi,

    Windows spotlight is an option for the lock screen background that displays different background images and occasionally offers suggestions on the lock screen. For us to better isolate your concern, we'd like to gather more information:

    • Is there a way for you to provide us a screenshot?
    • Have you made any recent changes before this issue occur?

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you follow these steps to modify Lock screen background to spotlight:

    • Open Settings.
    • Click Personalization and select Lock screen.
    • Under Background, choose Windows spotlight.

    Keep us posted if you need additional help.

    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

    .

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

    Regards.
