    Lock screen image on laptop changes each time but not on desktop


    Every time I boot or wake from sleep, my laptop displays a cool new image from Bing, presumably, but on my desktop this does not happen - I get the same image every time and I'd like it to change too.

    I have the Settings... lock screen.. open on both and they both are set the same to "Windows spotlight"

    Both are on the same anniversary update.and build.

    It's bugging me because I can't figure it out!! Any ideas??

    Thanks in advance.

    I think that Windows knows it distinguish the difference if it's a laptop or desktop. What is the setting in Settings-System-Tablet Mode- "Use the appropriate mode for my hardware"
    Since laptops have a sensor for rotating screens, right? and desktops don't...right?

    Well when I said rotating, I meant it shows a new picture each time I see the lock screen on my laptop whereas on my desktop it's always the same image.

    I understand what you are saying about rotating on a laptop but that's not what I meant. Sorry. Bad choice of words on my part! I updated the title!

    If you have the lockscreen set to Windows Spotlight it will choose random pictures. Settings-Personalization-Lockscreen

    I have it set to Windows Spotlight per my original post but the image is always the same.
