    dislike startup screen shot - how to change picture.


    In the Past there had been a "like what you see" link on the picture, I cannot find anything on this latest - I wish to get rid of it.

    Hi, I've been wondering where 'Like what you see' went on the lock screen.. and it's not obvious how or if it can be restored.
    Choosing Spotlight should allow MS to continue to change the image, or by choosing Picture you can select your own folder.

    A free App 'Amazing Lock Screen' provides another approach.

    Hi Dalchina, Thank you I have printed off the above to study as a novice - I did not mind educating me with se caves and unusual Geology, but The Fox locked on to my screen although swiftly disappears, can be improved on.

    Perhaps it depends on how you ended up on the lock screen? If I sign out I see the lock screen without the 'like what you see', but if I click Start then lock the screen from my user icon I do see it.

    I have (had?) a slightly different problem. I 'liked' a picture then quickly got bored with it. Even though I can still get the 'like what you see', having already answered it only said 'thank you for sending feedback'. I managed to get back to being offered a choice with the help of this thread on Superuser . I said 'not a fan' this time. It's not been long since I 'disliked' it - as yet I'm still seeing the same picture...

    Spotlight in Settings, Personalisation, Lock Screen is the option where MS provides new screens. I now don't get a preview of the picture. As you say, I briefly found Win key L (lock) showed 'like what you see' (it used many weeks ago to be on any lock screen instance), but not now.

    I found a site where I could download 170 or so spotlight pictures, and the there's app I mentioned- with which I'm not so enamoured- but will probably just stay with Picture and browse to whatever I fancy. Currently

    I just don't understand what's happened here- there are plenty of reports of loss of 'like what you see' and no apparent solutions. I suspect playing around with disabling the lock screen has done that. Personally, I'm not bothered about it, mere curiosity.
