    Lock screen apps not showing up on lock screen


    I've tried searching through the forum but can't see anyone who has a similar issue.

    I can access the lock screen settings and I can see all available apps and have set a detailed status app and a couple of less detailed ones. However, when I actually get to the lock screen after having set the apps to appear, there is nothing but the time and date and WiFi in bottom-right corner.

    Could this be because I am logging in locally rather than using a MS account?

    I'm having exactly the same issue, and I log in using a Microsoft account.

    I think I might have figured it out...

    I found that if the computer is actually locked (as in lock screen...) once it has been logged on to, THEN the little widget things appear. I was looking at the screen that appears when the computer is initially turned on.

    Correct - since the widgets are customisable per user profile

    Hi,

    I have weather set as detailed app on lockscreen as well as mail/calendar as quick status. If I lock the screen after setting them up, the details show but after a reboot and logging back in, they do not re-appear. The first time I tried this, the selections were not saved and reselecting them and locking the screen showed them.

    Now, however, the selections remain as I chose but a reboot then lock shows nothing,

    Well it seems to be working now despite me not doing anything to fix it - I think the apps don't show on lock screen until a little while after you've logged in.
