    Hi, I have the same problem. I tried everything in this post and other found on internet but I didn't fix it. I have Windows 10 Home and I don't have Policy Group Editor.

    Happend when joining the domain


    Ive just re installed win10 to test.

    I was able to change the lock screen, and it showed up correctly, Prior to joining my domain.

    Domain controller is a windows server 2012 box.

    have made no other changes to the pc other than joining the domain.

    now I only get a solid blue background on the lock screen.

    Further notes for reference: I am not on a domain. I am the only user (and admin) on my PC. No group policies and such set.

    I've got the same issue. I haven't got the mentioned registry key and setting the lockscreen image through the photos app does not work neither even though it says that the lockscreen image had been correctly set. Appears to be a bug of this Windows 10 build.

    A new update came out today, 8/5/15 (technically yesterday now, lol). I installed it, restarted my PC, and now the lock screen is one of the default pictures. In this case the view out of a cave on a beach. Sad part is that everything else is still not working. So I just get to see this picture now instead of a solid color until we solve this.

    The update was: KB3081424

    I had this same issue, THIS option worked for me. The default setting was set to "Not Defined". I did check in my registry just to see if the key mentioned in another post was there, it was not.

    I am still having an issue though, previously when locked my slideshow would display on multiple monitors that are hooked up to my docking station. Now they just display on my main monitor. When docked I do NOT use the laptop screen, just the 3 monitors attached to the docking station. While this is not a major issues by any means, any help with it would be grateful.

    I have this problem too and seems like the only fix at this moment is creating a new user account and move the data from the affected user account folder into the user account that you just created because new user accounts don't have this problem.

    Since creating a new user account was mentioned...I decided to try to play with that a bit. I created a new (local) user to see if I could find file differences and such. Under the new user the lock personalization windows functioned again. I first went back to the file locations that the walkthrough for manually setting a default lock screen mentions. I found that the default images were back in place and everything looked clean. Instead of looking around more I switched back to my normal user to see if anything changed (since those files/folders are not user specific). Nothing changed.......

    However, I managed to set my lock screen image shortly after that. I feel like an idiot now for not seeing this sooner. In Windows 8 I always had the file type shown in the file names. I failed to notice this got turned off after the upgrade so it turns out I was naming a .png file "img100.jpg" which does no good. Once I corrected this it took the image.

    The sad part is the lock screen personalization windows and setting one via the photo app still does not work. I am guessing this is a result of my original rename of the SystemData folder. I am happy though, finally having my lock screen the image I wanted

    Thanks all! I will leave this thread unsolved until we can figure out the other issues and be able to set this normally instead of manually.

    Oh, one more thing in case it was part of the cause. I found the properties of the picture I was trying to use said it was blocked due to being from another computer....I checked the box to unblock it. This is odd since I used this before the upgrade too and no other pictures I have said such a thing.
