    Desktop picture slideshow turns itself off


    Daily, I find that the personalisation settings have changed. I boot to a new background but then it stays fixed on the new picture. In the Personalisation settings. 'Slideshow' changes itself to 'Picture'. I set it to use the slideshow when on batteries, but that switch turns off, too. I presume this is a bug? Is there a fix of any kind? I've searched the forum but can't find any other occurrence of this.

    One way that your personalisation settings can change automatically is if you use a Microsoft account for login on multiple PC's/Laptops. With Sync your settings turned on whatever you have set on one machine will be updated on the others. However, I don't know if this scenario would explain your situation.

    Thanks, PhilC, but I don't. I only log in to the one Windows 10 PC using my Microsoft account. I'm still trying to identify what's happened when the settings reset themselves. No clue so far.
