    Shawn this is 90 minutes after a restart. "like what you see" was missing on the lock screen. That is what started me down this road.

    PS Slideshow is not working either.
    Odd. If you like, you might see if a repair install can sort it for you without losing anything.

    I'll have to wait for the next reboot to find out (it works with winkey+L), I'll keep you posted.

    It seems to have changed this reboot, whether it will on next boot, only time will tell.

    Good news so far.

    I believe it will only automatically change once daily though.

    Nope. Same as before. Spotlight and Slideshow are still black with no image.

    Do they work properly for other accounts on the PC?

    Did you do anything to disable Content Delivery or Telemetry? Doing so may cause this as a side effect.

    I did not knowingly. I never remove any Windows apps and I do not tinker with telemetry. This build 16232 was upgraded from a clean installed of build 16199. I noticed from the beginning that something was never quite right with 16199. In the Task Manager Service Host usually has 16 to 24 items grouped together, but that is not the case in 16199 or the upgraded 16232. So I think it is time for a clean install of 16232.

    I found the problem with Slideshow which was Windows Search service was disabled. I did that and I had forgotten that it is required for Slideshow to work.
