    Auto lockscreen feature


    I had that feature where the lockscreen changes automatically and asks you if you like what you see. One day I went to my start menu/personalization/lockscreen and chose a picture for my lockscreen. Now I would like to have that auto feature back and I don't know how to get it. Can someone help with this?

    It is called Spotlight. In Settings / Personalization - select Lock screen and then Windows Spotlight

    I didn't get any notification that I had answers. I don't have anything under Lock Screen but Picture and Slideshow. There is no "Windows Sporlight."

    I went to Microsoft Store and downloaded an extension called Spotlight but nothing more appeared.

    Spotlight is a built-in feature of Windows 10, it is not an app that cab be downloaded from the Store. Whatever you downloaded, it is not Spotlight. I can see that there is a Store app to use Spotlight images as your wallpaper, but that is not from Microsoft.


    What edition of Windows 10 do you have? Spotlight is not included in 'Windows 10 Pro Education'.


    Also, Spotlight can be disabled by group policy. The Group Policy Editor is only available in Pro and above. To remove Spotlight from the locks screen settings, disable the 'Configure Windows spotlight on the lock screen' policy is in User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Cloud Content

    If you don't have Spotlight (this is possible, like Bree stated..), Download Dynamic Theme. Great app, you can utilize Spotlite pictures, but also Bing and browse through history..
