    Wrong Picture On Lockscreen


    Hi all, I have put Christmas pictures on my wife's computer (Same spec as mine). She wanted both the lock screen and the desktop pictures to change daily. I accomplished that alright but when the computer boots to the place where it wants the password input instead of a Christmas pic it shows the generic windows pic (which I have included below). Is there any way to make it just show the Christmas pictures from the lock screen into desktop? Thanks in advance. CC

    Hi Bhavin,

    Sorry for the delay in response.

    • Check if this happens only when you select a particular lock screen picture?
    • Have you set your Facebook photo or the profile picture on any other Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 computer?
    • Does it happen only when you restart the computer?
    • Do you use Windows 10 home or pro?

    You may check the version by using these steps.

    Type Winver in the search box and check.

    Check the option that is selected in the lock screen as a Picture or slideshow in Windows 10 Pro.

    • Right click on an empty space and select Personalize.
    • Click Lock Screen and check if it is set to Picture or slideshow.
    Thank you.

    Quick Access not searching Pictures folder

    Summary, that last suggestion didn't work.

    • I moved the pictures to another folder temporarily.


    • Since there were no troubleshooting steps for this scenario, just for the heck of it, I ran through the restore steps. Copied some pictures into the Pictures folder, ran a Quick Access search and initial problem remains: Searching all of QA doesn't find any files in Pictures folder, running search on just the Pictures folder does. I want to run a global search and find matching files in any/all of the Documents, Music, Videos, and Pictures folders.
    That article dates from 2015 and I'm guessing is out of date. I hope it didn't create potential future problems in my registry.

    Bottom line: I'm still looking for a fix.

    Lockscreen Picture Issue

    Hi,

    So I've been having issues with personalizing my lockscreen, it won't let me change the picture setting from Windows Spotlight. Along with it not letting me change the settings, when I finally get to the settings don't seem to get saved. I'll have set up
    my lockscreen picture and my screensaver the night before and wake up to find they've been changed back to the default settings. I've tried restarting it, checking/updating the computer, looking through the forums, scan the internal workings of the system,
    pretty much almost everything I can think of, yet nothing has worked. When I first got the computer I had no problems with changing the picture and having it stay that way. I'm really at a loss with what I could do to fix it and I'd really hate to have to
    buy a brand new computer or something when I've only had the thing for less than a year. It's updated to Windows 10, so I'm not sure if it's a bug in the system or something wrong with the computer itself, but if anyone has any suggestions it would be very
    much appreciated.
