    Thanks! I will go through all of those solutions and report back what steps I took and what worked.
    Sorry, but these are not real solutions. Maybe someone else have more insight into it.

    Recap of situation so far:

    1. The method here unfortunately does not seem to work anymore maybe due to Windows updates, because there are multiple "LockScreen" folders.
    2. The app Easy Lock Screen Changer randomly goes through pictures so can't sync it with desktop.
    3. Using Groove Music player as instructed here can be made to work but it requires it to be playing/running and hence even if possible it's an inconvenient solution.

    Thus no real solution found yet but I will keep trying with #1, since if I can make it work that will be a pretty good permanent solution. I am also still looking for other third-party apps but no luck so far.

    @YBH Hope you're still following this forums :)

    In the latest Insider build, MS put some links into Personalization section of Settings and remembered this old unsolved problem..
    Check out Dynamic Theme from MS Store. Could be a solution to your problem (if you 're still into it)

    I am very interested in this also. I can't believe that Windows has slideshow settings for both Desktop Wallpaper and Lock Screen, yet they are so different.

    Hi, late to the party: if you were to use a 3rd party wallpaper changer that could be set to use as source the picture used for the lock screen, that may achieve your aim.

    But whether you could achieve a smooth transition without the previous desktop wallpaper being displayed briefly, I have my doubts.

    Examples:
    Johns Adventures
    Wally- Awesome Wallpaper Rotator for Windows, Mac Linux

    @dalchina Dynamic Theme (link to MS Store is in my post above) does exactly this. With Spotlight and Bing pictures, or slideshow.

    Not sure what do you mean by smooth transitions - when and where...

    Imagine the user logs in. At some point in the launch sequence the wallpaper changer program is launched. However, if there are many startups, it could be that launches and runs after the previous desktop is displayed. If that was different from the lockscreen background, a different image would appear before being replaced by the lock screen image. A discontinuity.
