    Is there a way to return to the geographical interest startup screen?


    I am not sure if this is the right forum category but will give it a shot.

    Is there a way to return to that first startup screen in Windows 10? It usually shows some fun or interesting place in the world, and some text about it, and it can be clicked on to discover more. Sometimes I want to go back to it and wish there was a way... but I can't find it if it does exist. Hitting back arrows or esc key doesn't bring it back once you click somewhere to log in.
    This screenshot is showing one example of the startup screen I am talking about.

    Hello palouseflyer, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Usually, letting the computer sit without user activity for about a minute or so will cause it to return to the lock screen.

    Welcome @palouseflyer,
    If you can't wait, you can lock the screen with WinKey+L

    I'd be curious to see an answer at well. Unfortunately none of the posts above even address the OP's question though.

    From my understanding, palouseflyer is wanting to know how to go back to the lock screen once you clicked on it to go to the sign-in screen.

    If I understood correctly, then post #2 is a direct answer and solution to the question.

    It seems to me that, as the subject line says, OP wants to get that "geographical interest startup screen" he shows in his post as his lock screen. The picture he posted looks like this is something that's powered by Bing. I have personally never seen that one, and haven't seen an option to enable it.

    On the other hand, looking at OP's post again, perhaps it was I who misunderstood his question. I apologize if that is the case.

    Either way, the OP seems to have it sorted now.
