    Personalize queries

    I am new to Windows 10 so this is probably a rather basic question.

    When I use Personalize (right click on desktop) to set the Lock screen to off it only works at power off/on. When I resume from sleep the lock screen picture appears. How can I turn that off also?

    The reason I don't need lock screen pics is that I have a very good slideshow for my desktop - but I have a problem with that too. I prefer my slide show to change once a day but that setting is ignored and the desktop pic changes multiple times a day. I suspect this is also connected in some way with sleep because when I use the one minute setting and leave my PC on it does in fact change once a minute. However I haven't taken the trouble to leave my PC on continuously for a whole day to see if that works. How can I ensure that my desktop slideshow in fact only changes once a day regardless of any sleep periods?

    Hello dalgo and welcome to TenForums :)

    The following tutorial shows you various ways to turn off the Lock Screen.

    I'm not sure I can help you with a one per day slideshow setting.
