    I would not do that over this silly thing, still wondering why I concerned myself with it. OCD??

    You know, it's not really that important a feature but as soon as I read this I had to test Win+L myself - sure enough my Weather app details were missing from 15063.296's lock screen.

    Then I opened the Weather app to check it was still working.

    Thereafter the Weather details appeared on the lock screen and continued to do so after I closed the Weather app.

    Then I checked Settings > Privacy > Background Apps. I note that at some time I had turned off 'Let apps run in the background'. I turned it back on, then turned it off individually for all apps except Weather. After a Restart the Weather details now appear on the lock screen even if I've never opened the app itself.
