    spotlight not working

    in the fall creators update, i do not get any image on the lock screen when first booting up in the morning. it is just a blue screen with the date and time. but once logged in, if i hit windows key and L, i get a picture (and asking if i like it). spotlight wasn't working properly after the first creators update. i've done the deleting of picture files suggested in other posts but it was only temporary, eventually showing the same picture day in day out. any help would be appreciated. thanks.

    thanks Brink. thought MS would have addressed it the fall creators update. hopefully they'll fix it in the next spring creators update.
