    Wrong Picture On Lockscreen


    Hi all, I have put Christmas pictures on my wife's computer (Same spec as mine). She wanted both the lock screen and the desktop pictures to change daily. I accomplished that alright but when the computer boots to the place where it wants the password input instead of a Christmas pic it shows the generic windows pic (which I have included below). Is there any way to make it just show the Christmas pictures from the lock screen into desktop? Thanks in advance. CC

    That is the lock screen.

    Change Settings, Personalization, Lock screen, Background to Slideshow (then choose album folder(s)).

    Thanks for the quick response NMI but that is exactly what I did and it still shows the generic picture.

    You need to set a Christmas background as 'Picture' then enable 'Slideshow'

    The Slideshow will appear momentarily after the 'Set' Picture.

    (Slideshow will not work when you intentionally Sign-out.)

    That worked Edwin, didn't know that I had to select a picture first. Thanks to all that helped.
