    Cannot change background image on Windows 10, and not because I don't know how. It simply is not working!

    Hi ibh and welcome to the forum.

    You need to be more descriptive. Please give exact details of everything you have tried so far.

    Also, have a look at the TenForums Guide: How to Change your Desktop Background in Windows 10.

    Are you on a domain or no? Wallpaper, lockscreen? Need more info.

    Hello ibh, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    In addition to what was posted above, do you have the Remove background images (where available) box checked in Ease of Access Center?

    Not on a domain. There is a lockscreen wallpaper, which works well (can change it).
