    Deleted Spotlight image still appearing


    I've changed the Lock Screen Background setting to Slideshow & have chosen my own folder w/images to use.
    I also deleted ALL Lock Screen Background images that Windows saves to the computer under:
    C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\Assets

    But for some reason, this 1 Windows image still always shows. Anyone know why this is?

    This picture is image100.jpg on my system and can be deleted, but you may need to take ownership of it first. It appears in several locations if you do a search, including WinSXS folder, so I advice caution, maybe substitute an image of your own for it to avoid possible errors.

    Open C:\ drive do a search for *.jpg, choose view options large icons.

    @CJW,

    These images are part of any standard W10 install and are located in C:\Windows\Web\Screen

    I've completely deleted everything in that folder & the folder as well.

    Same thing is happening to me, i change the image but it sets back to a default one on its own at every reboot. Did you find a fix?

    Nope, still haven't found a fix. Once my comfuser goes into Lock mode, the damn Windows picture comes up for a few seconds, but then the slideshow of my chosen pictures starts. I cannot find anywhere this Windows picture is, even in the registry.
