    Themes no longer easily found under personalize

    I was trying to change my slide show of pictures as background theme. Now when I right click on the desktop , then click on personalize , I get a pop up that is different from what I had before. Now the theme selections are no longer displayed for easy selection . In its place is a browse button so I had to browse to where the original themes I downloaded are stored. ie users/name/appdata/local/microsoft/windows/themes .

    Is this normal ? I don't recall having to do this after upgraded to win 10 . Any ideas ?

    If this is the new norm , then can I move the downloaded Themes folders containing the pictures to another location like "my pictures " so I can easily navigate to them and change the photo selection ?

    I found the problem . I should have clicked on Theme , then theme settings. I was distracted by the button for background photos

Can't personalize lock screen due to L.G.P.E.
I can't edit anything in "Settings > Personalization > Lock Screen". It says "Some settings are managed by your organization". I assume this was set by Windows in Local Group Policy Editor automatically because I have not even messed with L.G.P.E...
