    How to Rate Windows Spotlight Background Images on Lock Screen in Windows 10


    information   Information
    Windows Spotlight is an option for the lock screen background that displays different background images from Bing each day and occasionally offers suggestions on the lock screen. Windows Spotlight is available in all desktop editions of Windows 10.

    Windows Spotlight fun facts, tips, tricks, and suggestions will only show on the Win+L lock screen while signed in, and will not show on the lock screen at startup.

    When you lock the computer (Win+L), you can click on the Like what you see? link on the Windows Spotlight lock screen background image to rate it with I like it or Not a fan.
    • I like it = Keep showing you more images like the current one.

    My issue is that there is no option to "Rate" anything. The picture changes, but the Sign In field is always displayed, and never the "Like what you see?"....

    Do you mean that you do not see the lock screen (without sign-in options) and only the sign-in screen?

    The lock screen, without the sign in, never comes up. Not unless I do the Windows+L process. If I do Start>Lock, it goes to sign in. If I do Windows+L, it goes to Lock Screen.

    But, it changes to Lock Screen after a few minutes. This doesn't. I flickers momentarily, like it wants to change, but it doesn't. Login shows back up. THAT, if I'm not mistaken, is NOT normal. Is it?

    No. That part isn't normal.

    I suppose if you have face sign-in, it may be trying to scan for you and possibly causing this glitch.

    Nah, I don't use face sign in. Just the old fashioned password, or PIN.

    Do you think it would have anything to do with my OS being a Windows Insider Preview?

    Possible, but I haven't had that issue on any of my Insider systems so far.

    OK. That makes me feel better. But what makes it di this? I keep my updates done, and try to keep the system clean. But there are so many threads, all over the "Net", with people having Spotlight issues. And those threads aren't nearly as easy to understand as yours. But then, you are "BRINK"! You rock dude!
