    It sounds like you may have a group policy like below enabled to prevent it.

    Do you have Windows 10 Pro installed? If so, you can also check group policy to see which ones you have enabled that could be preventing this if the above doesn't help.

    Thanks.

    This link seems to work.

    I forgot previously I disabled changing the background.

    This may be a silly question but is there anyway to set the desktop background to the Bing image of the day as was possible in windows 7. I assume the windows spotlight feature is similar for the lock screen but I always liked the bing image as my desktop wallpaper.

    Hello Regonaut, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Sure. You could install the Bing Desktop app to also have the Bing wallpaper as your desktop background in Windows 10 as well.

    Does that work on 10 now Shawn? During the Preview I couldn't download/install it. Of course except for the image of the day, 10 has/does everything else that Bing Desktop does.

    Cool thank's for the info. I'll think about installing it when I do my clean install. I really liked how the improved it, to where you had a choice of 4 different backgrounds a day.

    Many thanks. Got it working. Initially I had trouble installing as it insisted I had a newer version installed but I couldn't locate it. Managed to reinstall using compatibility settings and all now working just great.

    Really impressed by your very quick response so thanks again.
