  1. Windows Spotlight


    Hello, everyone!

    There is something wrong. Every time I go to lock screen settings to turn on Windows Spotlight, the option isn't even there. It shows only Picture, and slideshow. Does anybody know how to fix this issue?

    :)

    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:

    • Open Settings.

    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

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

    Regards.
