    How do I get my Windows Live Lock Screen Background to Change Again


    Recently, My lock screen, which is set on Windows Live Backgrounds, has stopped changing photos. Wondering if anyone could help?

    If Windows Live refers to Spotlight then you can run Brinkís Spotlight fix: Reset and Re-register Windows Spotlight in Windows 10 Customization Tutorials
    Iíve found that allís OK until you mark a photo as Ďnot a faní then it goes to the default mountain/red backpack photo & I have to run the fix again. If I donít use Ďnot a faní photo changes every day or two; choosing Ďlikeí works as it should.
    If itís a third-party app/software then you may have to contact the developer to fix the problem.

    Yes, I was referring to spotlight. My apologies. This seemed to work. Thanks for the help. Much appreciated.

    Do you have the Fall Creators Update (1709)? I have found that since getting 1709 Spotlight has stopped working several times. Brink's tutorial has always got it working again.

    Some other aspects of Spotlight have improved in 1709, it now shows the Spotlight picture at boot up (previously at boot you'd see the default 'cave' even if Spotlight was selected).
