    No Lock Screen


    I've got a weird problem that I cant' seem to figure out. So when I lock my computer, it doesn't display a lock screen just goes straight to password screen.
    The windows spotlight image doesn't change although if i set the image manually this does work.
    I've checked group policy and the disable lock screen isn't configured. I've tried enabling and disabling it.

    I don't get the screen without the password prompt.

    When locking the computer it goes straight to this screen instead of

    I understand you have no lock screen when using Windows Spotlight.

    I've found Spotlight very hard to repair, although I have managed to get from no Spotlight, to Spotlight fully functioning, but no preview picture in Settings. It seemed to take a few days to sort itself out in the end.

    Does it work in any of your accounts?

    Ideas:
    Delete all pictures in the folder listed in thread (you can make a backup copy first).

    This may be of interest: note the specific registry key references to missing image files:

    Make sure you have not disabled the lock screen by this means:
