    Thanks for confirming that you don't see it on lock. The steps I would take now are (in this order)...

    sfc/ scannow
    Run SFC Command in Windows 10

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    Use DISM to Repair Windows 10 Image
    (you may need to repeat these two steps up to 3 times until no errors are found)

    If the above steps don't fix it, then an in-place repair install almost certainly will (you will be able to keep your installed apps and files).

    Finally - something that worked. I just joined to say thank you for finally fixing my Spotlight. I've spent literally a year and a half searching for the solution, deleting files, logging in, logging out, running SFC, etc., and through it all, my Spotlight wouldn't even stay as an option - it kept reverting to "Picture".

    After the latest Windows 10 Update, 1803, I had hoped it might be fixed by MS, but it wasn't. So I started another search again this morning, found the batch file at the start of this thread - and like magic, it works again.

    I'm going to be very judicious about responding to the "Do you like this?" question, as I think that's what broke it in the first place.

    Many thank you's


    Thanks for the tutorial and the bat file. I now have a working lock screen. I couldn't even use one of my own downloaded wallpaper for picture on lockscreen. It is finally working after around 8 months of being stuck on one picture. I know that really a thing like that is not a big deal but I really hate when I can't be in control of what I want to happen on my computer. Thank you for helping me sort out this windows bug. I made a login just to thank you. Have a great day !!

    This is for 1803 and apologies if it has already been used - Brink gets the credit.
    !st command line:

    del /f /s /q /a "%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalSt ate\Assets"

    second command line:
    del /f /s /q /a "%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_cw5n1h2txyewy\Setting s"

    Last PowerShell command line:
    $manifest = (Get-AppxPackage *ContentDeliveryManager*).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest

    Hello Peter,

    Yep, that's what the .bat file does.
