    Windows Spotlight stuck on 1 image


    This is a problem I've had for a while now, and it's extremely frustrating. Despite the lock screen background option being set to Windows Spotlight, all it shows me is a picture of this lake in New Zealand with a small red backpack in the foreground. Now I've searched time and time again for a solution to this problem, and I have tried all of them. From changing my network to deleting everything in the assets and settings folders to re-registering Spotlight to deleting the keys in the Creative registry key to even using a different user account, nothing has shown even the slightest indication of working at all. The really crappy part is that every few months Windows will suddenly have a change of heart and show me a new picture, sometimes even with the "Like what you see?" button, only to revert back after a few days at most. Is anyone in the same situation, and does anyone have a solution that might work?

  2. Windows spotlight not work!!

    Yes friend all these steps working for me.check these path , first path for check : C:\Windows\Web\Screen (find the stuck image and rename it) , or second path " C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\SystemData\ " at this path you will se two main folders check all these folder at all and you will find the image there.Rename or delete the image stuck only.After re-register again the spotlight and wait after some restart.Something last i had the same problem and delete the registry folder "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\Creative\S-1-5-21-1367095634-179868200-954147944-1001" and do a restart after all these step the spotlight download again new images and start working again.Please make a backup first at register.before delete everything.

    For some reason the Windows Spotlight feature is stuck and doesn't change pictures on a daily basis before I log into Windows.

    I have tried deleting the specified files and refreshing Windows Spotlight using this tutorial on tenforums but it didn't fix the problem

    The tutorial also says that I have to make sure that the Settings app and Edge are running in the background through the Privacy Settings -> Background apps.

    However, I can't find these apps in my list at all to enable them in the first place. I did an "sfc /scannow" command prompt but it didn't find any integrity violations.

    Windows Spotlight image stuck

    Hi Robin,

    Windows Spotlight frequently changes the photos using
    Bing
    to provide an image-of-the-day giving everyone a fresher look every time they access their computers. This feature is dependent on the Internet connection and without it, you won’t be able to get yourself that special nature scenery.

    Furthermore, we suggest following the steps below to resolve the issue:

    • Right-click on the Start Menu.
    • Choose Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type the following commands (Wait for the process to finish before proceeding to the next steps.):
      • dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth, click Enter.
      • Sfc /scannow, click Enter.
      • Powershell, click Enter.
      • Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like "*SystemApps*"} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
        then click Enter.
      • Restart the computer after the process.
    Don't hesitate to inform us on how it goes.
