    Create Photo problem for sign in screen


    When I click on the Browse button to find a photo to use for my sign on page, nothing happens. Any suggestions?

    I've attached a screen shot of the Settings page I am referring to. Browse Button does not work.

    On my laptop, when I click on BROWSE in SETTINGS, PERSONALIZATION, BACKGROUND, it opens a pop up window to my This PC/Pictures folder. It does take 5 or 10 seconds to open the window. Are you waiting long enough?

    Yes. Clicking on the browse button doesn't have any effect.

    Is your edition of Windows activated?

    Sorry, I don't know what that means: (is your edition of Windows activated).

    OK, I just checked and Windows is activated. I think in cleaning up apps, Icons and files I must have switched off something, maybe in Services. I just realized I have the same problem with browsing for a picture to add to my Background. The Browse button doesn't work there either.

    EDIT:
    It just occurred to me that the Browse buttons might be directed to the MS Photo folder. I deleted that folder and all the others like it as I keep my data on a separate internal drive. Could this be the case? If so I will need to change something to redirect the Browse buttons to my D Drive.

    Yes it does direct you to 'Photos' by default, that could be the problem.
