    I became a victim of Windows Spotlight not working

    Today Windows Spotlight stopped working for me. I see the text prompts, for example if I like what I see or other information about the image, but actually there is no image to see.

    It happened after Windows was updated to version 21H1 (OS Build 19043.1023).

    You could try to reset and re-register Windows Spotlight using the method in the tutorial below to hopefully fix it.

    Thank you for the suggestion. I tried doing it twice, but with no success.

    What I find particularly odd is that the image is not shown, but the rest of the information about the image is actually displayed on the lock screen.

    By the way I also do not see the image in the preview part of the Lock Screen Settings.

    EDIT: One of my other two accounts on this PC apparently had the same problem. I ran the reset-reregister batch file on the two accounts and now everything appears to be in order. Marking this thread as solved.
