    Broken Lock Screen prefs: Windows Spotlight not working


    For unknown reasons the Lock Screen prefs is locked on Slideshow mode, Picture and Windows spotlight do nothing:



    In english:

    Even when I select Windows spotlight or Picture the prefs window doesn't change accordingly but everything stays locked in Slideshow mode (?!) with its options. There is not even the preview anymore in upper part but the usual rolling balls circle (???!).

    SFS /scannow gives no errors.

    Windows 10 x64 desktop mode 1920x1080...

    This fixed my issue: Lockscreen issues on Windows 8.1 - Microsoft Community

    I've ADDED these values to my corrupt registry, and it worked!
    Added values to HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Lock Screen :

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Lock Screen]
    "ImageId_A"="{9F5E9C6C-8359-4271-81D0-2B72817D3CDF}"
    "Details_A"="ROAMING"
    "ImageId_B"="{4F9143FC-E200-44C8-A55B-39084FB5C3C0}"
    "Details_B"="APPID:FileManager_cw5n1h2txyewy!Microsoft.Windows.PhotoManager"
    "ImageId_C"="{7C104D7F-E472-42CB-BE45-436218EEC483}"
    "Details_C"="APPID:FileManager_cw5n1h2txyewy!Microsoft.Windows.FileManager"
    "ImageId_D"="{F4BE80C1-0EBB-47F7-841A-E3F766DB1550}"
    "Details_D"="APPID:FileManager_cw5n1h2txyewy!Microsoft.Windows.FileManager"

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Lock Screen\FeedManager]

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Lock Screen\FeedManager\Feeds]

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Lock Screen\FeedManager\Selected]




    Now my current and working again registry looks like this:
