    Windows Spotlight stuck on 1 picture


    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 thistutorial 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 - stuck on Picture, can't cahange to Windows spotlight

    Hello,

    I've set Settings - Personalization - Lock screen - Background to Windows spotlight.

    Windows spotlight appears when I log off or lock my computer, but when I restart it or turn it on, it's stuck on a picture from Background - Picture.

    I've tried this:

    https://www.windowscentral.com/how-fix-windows-spotlight-stuck-same-image-windows-10

    and

    Windows Spotlight lock screen is stuck on the same picture!

    but as my problem is a bit different (it's not stuck on a single Windows spotlight picture) maybe the solution is as well?

    Thank you,

    Sonja

    WIndows Spotlight Picture struck in one picture

    Hi Alok,

    There are various reasons why Windows Spotlight wallpaper is not changing or fetching a new wallpaper from Bing.

    As an initial troubleshooting step, we suggest resetting Windows Spotlight preference by following the steps below:

    • Create a system restore point.
    • Once done, press Windows key + I to open Settings..
    • Select Personalization.
    • Click Lock Screen.
    • Under Background option, select Picture.
    • Set a picture as a default lock screen background.
    • Locate to: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_<characters>\Settings.

      Note: Make sure to unhide all hidden folders on Windows 10.
    • In this folder, delete these: roaming.lock and settings.dat.
    • Repeat steps 2-4.
    • Under Background option, select Windows spotlight.
    • See if the issue will persist.

    If the issue still persist, re-register Windows Spotlight:

    • Press Windows key + S.
    • Type powershell.
    • Select Windows PowerShell.
    • On the PowerShell window, type: Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager -allusers | foreach {Add-AppxPackage -register "$($_.InstallLocation)\appxmanifest.xml" -DisableDevelopmentMode}
    • Press Enter.
    • See if your wallpaper will change.

    Update us with the outcome so we can provide further assistance.
