    Setting Lock Screen Image from Photo App


    I have been looking at the Lock Screen Background tutorial. I should be able to set the image from my Photo App however my Photo App doesn't look anything like the screen in the tutorial with no option to set as Lock Screen from the drop down menu or even a Draw facility icon on the menu bar. Am I doing something wrong here, any help please?

    It's simply that you haven't selected an individual image yet. You are on the Collections/Albums/Folders screen. Choose an image and the 'Set as' options will be available.

    Click on the image of your choice to open it. The 'set as' options are available only when you are viewing that single image the Photos app. In your screenshot you are still on the 'collections' page.

    Many thanks Bree, I was having a senior moment. Having said that if I tick the select box in an image in the top right corner and then deselect, it is not possible to open the image without closing the App and re-opening it. I assume that is how the App is supposed to work? ......................... I have now resolved that as well by clicking the little arrow top left that takes me back to the original page.

    Thanks for your help. Bit of a learning curve this Win 10.
