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.

    That's a start for the slideshow option.

    I read that some folks reported having Animate windows when minimizing and maximizing checked in Visual Effects fixed the Windows Spotlight black screen issue. You might give it a try to see if it may for you as well.

    Hello Shawn,

    Yeah when I started the Windows Search Service that fixed the Slideshow issue. I did a clean install of 16232 and Spotlight behaves the same as it did in my original 16232. Once I switch to Picture and back Spotlight I never get any image back. Just a never ending spinning circle. So I don't know what is going on.

    The grouping of the Task Manager items is normal on 16199 and 16232. The grouping I was not seeing was because the system had not run long enough. So I am back to my original 16232 thanks to Macrium Reflect. I will just live with the way Spotlight is for now.

    I'm having similar issue. I can only get one image to show up. Airplane with red wing. I have tried everything and no go. I'm on 10.0.15063 Pro.

    Any suggestions?

    Hello @lepa71,

    Have you already tried rating the Spotlight image with "Not a fan" to see if it may change?

    I don't get any spotlight images. There no "Like it" or "Not fan" links at all on lock screen. Also. the "Asset" folder is completely empty.

    Do you have a metered connection? If so, turn it off for a while and see what happens (it shouldn't take long for some 'assets' to appear). Spotlight will not download photos over a metered connection. Once it has downloaded some you can turn metered connections back on - Spotlight will work, but may quickly run out of new photos (then you can turn metering off again for a while).

    Nope. I checked. No metered connections here.

    Just to verify, are you testing this on the lock screen when you lock (Win+L) the computer, and not at startup?

    Personally, I've always found Windows Spotlight to be a bit buggy and not always change often or include the tips and such on it.

    Yes, I'm testing on lock screen win+L. I don't think it's working at all. There is no sign of it on lock screen.

    The only other thing I can suggest is to update to the latest version 1709 build 16299.19 of Windows 10 to see if that can fix it for you.
