  1. Windows Spotlight Option Glitched Out


    So apparently, I realised that my "windows spotlight" wasn't even working for the past few months. So I decided to change it in settings from picture options to windows spotlight, once I click exit, for some reason, the option reverts back to picture and it totally glitched out. I can record it if you want if you don't understand what I meant.


    + this applies to the fun facts and tips provided by windows on the lock screen. it reverts back to disabled each time I enable it.

    :)

    Spotlight

    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?
    • Are you able to use spotlight before?

    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.
