Windows 10: How to stop those Landscape images

    How to stop those Landscape images

    Whenever I leave my computer for some break, when I awaken it, there is a landscape image on the screen, in the upper right corner a box asking if I like it or not - the "not like" many times is not present. I do not know who sends the images, I beleive its Google. How do I disable this feature (if possible), sometimes its annoying.
    And where on the computer are these images so I can delete them.

    It's one version of a lock screen. You can have a slideshow of your own pics, or choose one.

    Spotlight is the feature that annoys you. And it's MS that's annoying you, not Google.

    A search engine will help you find out where they are.

    And if you wish, you can disable the lock screen. E.g.

    How to stop those Landscape images

    Thanks for the answers.
    I set the Lock Screen to 'off', and yet the images keep-on coming, more annoying is that in the upper-right box there is not the "I don't like..." option sometimes.
    Is there something else to do ?

    If you still have a lock screen (when you shouldn't if you disabled it) then change the setting (in Settings, Lock screen) to Picture or Slideshow. What you're unhappy with is presumably Spotlight.
