    Lock Screen background reset to 'Picture' even if set to 'Windows Spot

    Hello Everyone,

    Windows spotlight had been working on my laptop from last few months, however, after a recent upgrade, it stopped working. It is stuck on one image, never changes to another one. If I go to Settings > > Lock screen > > Background and set it to 'Windows Spotlight', it accepts it. When I lock the screen, the wallpaper doesn't change. If I go back to the Lock screen, it is found to be reset to 'picture'. In other words, changing to 'Windows Spotlight' never took effect. Please help, I really love Windows Spotlight and wish to see beautiful wallpapers keep coming. Thanks.

    Hello @Mahi, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you haven't already tried, you might see if resetting Windows Spotlight may be able to help it work again.
