Windows 10: Lock screen image on laptop rotates (which I like!) but not on desktop
Lock screen image on laptop changes each time but not on desktop
Every time I boot or wake from sleep, my laptop displays a cool new image from Bing, presumably, but on my desktop this does not happen - I get the same image every time and I'd like it to change too.
I have the Settings... lock screen.. open on both and they both are set the same to "Windows spotlight"
Both are on the same anniversary update.and build.
It's bugging me because I can't figure it out!! Any ideas??
Thanks in advance.

Sometimes I have no picture on the lock screen. Just a black background with the time and the date. If I go to Lock screen in Settings and select a different picture the sign-in background changes but lock screen background is still black. The...
Why doesn't Windows provide the location of the spotlight lock screen image? I really wish they would. Any one else see an image and wonder the physical location of the image?
