    My Lock Screen (Windows Spotlight) picture used to change weekly, but now it does not change anymore. It just stays on an old picture that I have seen when I first built my PC. Anyone know why?

    :)

    Lock screen picture doesn't change anymore

    My lock screen picture does not change anymore. Many others have this problem as well (Google search). A variety of fixes are suggested but most seem to involve messing with folder contents and even changing Registry entries. I am not comfortable with that.

    Online, the simplest suggested fix I have found is:

    1. In Personalization->Lock Screen settings change Background to Picture.
    2. Delete everything from folder

      C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_<somecharacters>\Settings
    3. In Personalization->Lock Screen settings change Background back to Windows Spotlight

    First, if this is a consistent problem for so many, is Microsoft working on a fix?

    Second, is the above solution safe to try?

    I'd prefer it if someone from Microsoft Tech Support would weigh in on this.

    Thanks,

    Troy

    Windows Spotlight on the lock screen

    Hi,

    There are multiple causes on why you're encountering this issue. To further troubleshoot the issue, we suggest that you disable and re-enable Spotlight. Simply follow the steps below:

    • Right-click on the desktop and open Personalize.
    • Open Lock Screen tab.
    • Under Background, switch from Windows Spotlight to a Picture or the Slideshow.
    • Click OK and close the Window.
    • Now Log off and log in.
    • Navigate to Lock screen and enable Windows Spotlight again.

    Let us know how it works.

    Lock Screen picture changing occasionally to microsoft Spotlight .


    I think I may be reading wrong, Mothie. Do you have the lock screen set to a picture in Microsoft's "spotlight" or do you have one of your own pictures set as the lock screen?

    When I have my lock screen set to show Microsoft Spotlight, it occasionally changes the picture; however, when I have one of my own pictures set, it never changes. Here is mine . . .

    Note that I have a choice between Windows spotlight, Picture and Slideshow. I've chosen picture, used one of my own (uploaded by a member of TF) and it never changes.
