    Lock screen in windows 10

    Hi All,

    I have Windows 10 Pro and activated.
    I tried to change the picture on my Lock screen and the beads just keep going around and will not display the picture I have selected. So therefore it will not change So I am stuck with the old windows 8.1 pro lock screen picture.
    I decided to try it on the laptop Windows 10 Home and I am able to change the lock screen picture to anything I want to.
    Can someone tell me if they have run into this problem since the upgrade?
    Is this a bug in the Pro version?

    I have not run into this problem, but I have Enterprise. It definitely isn't a widespread bug or else everyone would be talking about it, that's for sure. What you do you mean about the beads? I know that it's the loading icon, but when you're in the lock screen, does the background just show spinning beads or something like that?

    thank you for the reply.
    Yes when I select a different picture to apply to the lock screen the spinning beads continue forever. I left it for 20 mins and still spinning. I just don't understand why this is happening.
