    Media center was removed from 10. I have multiple monitors with the same background. How do you have yours set up? If you extend the monitors, you should get the same on both.

    Any picture on your system, right click it and select set as desktop Background. Themes should not be a problem.

    Please right click on the start icon and select Command prompt administrator, give admin permissions and copy/paste this into the window that opens and press enter sfc /scannow . If you decide to type it in, please notice the space between the sfc and the /. We want it to say no integrity violations were found. If it says there where corrupt files that could not be repaired, please reboot and run it again. You may have to run it 3 times with reboots in between each time.

    Other than something like that, I am running out of ideas, but it shouldn't be happening.

    Ran the scan,no problems found. I notice when I go to setting,Personalization, Lock Screen everything is like greyed out?. Is this normal ?

    Some setting are managed by your organization.
