    Usually the apps you set to show on the lock screen won't actually show unless there's a notification from the app. For example, new email for Mail app.

    Could this be the case for you?

    As a test, does the Weather app show if set to show with detailed status?

    It is just not the weather app it is any app.

    This is just a minor issue but it did work at one time after the latest update as well.

    Ok. It was a test to see if it may have worked with the Weather app since it will always show using "detailed status" if the Weather app has been previously opened and setup for your location.

    If it did, then we would know that it may be an issue with the other apps, or no new notification to show yet.

    Are you having any issues with opening these apps?

    I give up I have tried just about every fix I can find everything below it is a waste. I have been fooling with this for 3 days. Thanks for Trying Shawn but I am done.

    Short of doing a repair install, I'm not sure what else to suggest either that may fix it.

    As a matter of fact I could not open the mail app and could not repair it. I had to go to another build. But I am not concerned about this, I will be back on the IP next week. Thanks again Shawn

    I have done a complete in place upgrade repair, no matter what I do I cannot get any app to show in The Lock screen. So Since the Lock screen is sort of fluff and not really needed for anything I am going to remove it/ A man just has to know his limitations.:)
