Windows 10: Lock screen image

    Lock screen image


    Hi again

    My HP notebook running the AU update... and so fr running well

    On occasions when I use the sleep mode and then open the lid to wake it I get a black screen with the clock/date on and a few icon, i.e wireless etc, nut missing the background image, when I hit a key it brings up the screen with the background image and the log-in box...

    Any idea why the image does not show on the initial wake screen? it does not always do this, and if I shut down and power back on I get the image with the clock and a press of the key brings the log-in box...

    Seem to do it sometimes when waking from sleep..

    Hi

    Thanks for the reply

    That sounds like the procedure I used on my old upgraded notebook when I had just a black screen and could do nothing unless I powered off..

    This is just the image missing, the clock/date are there and it wakes up normal, just the initial wake screen is black with the clock, then when I hit a key the image and login box appear

    Just a thought... could this be because I have a password to log in on wake up?

    I have just changed the lock screen from spotlight to picture to see what happens

    What does changing these settings do with getting my windows spotlight to change images and get it working?
