    Lock Screen background picture


    Has anybody had difficulty adding a picture / wallpaper to the lock screen.
    I have just set up windows 10 screen saver and I see you can change the lock screen back ground picture.
    I have tried adding either one of the windows wallpapers or one of my own pictures but I can't find any option to save the image. on closing the window & returning to the lock screen the picture does not appear to save and returns to the standard blue background with date and time.
    I can't find any option to save the image as a lock screen wallpaper.
    Does anybody have any suggestions.
    Regards,
    Mark.

    I have the same issue. I have been looking all over for a solution but have yet to find one.

    Me too, I have given up at the moment. My Wife's PC is fine her back ground picture has been changed on the lock screen, but on my Dell Latitude I can't change it. I have checked all the settings against my Wife's one and all seem the same.

    Lock Screen Background - Change in Windows 10
    I have tried Brink, with no luck. It will not let me change the lock screen back ground picture. In the settings for lock screen I click on the picture I want and as soon as I go to the lock screen I have the standard blue background with date & time. I even tried opening the photos app and opening a specific picture then clicking set as lock screen and even that does not change the picture.

    I have a Latitude E6510, given up with the lock screen, I'm hoping somebody will have a solution very soon.

    Did you try rebooting after the change was specified rather than just logging out then back in?
