Windows Spotlight lock screen picture won't change [Fixed]

2018-09-12

Case

Hello,
 
I have an laptop running Windows 10, and usually when my laptop is locked, the picture changes every now and then on my lock screen and I really enjoyed that. But recently for the past month or two, it's been stuck on the same picture and it stopped changing to new pictures. I checked my settings and I still have "Windows Spotlight" set as my lock screen but still nothing happens. It just stopped working and changing pictures for some reason.
 
If anyone can help, please do!

Solution

  1. Open Start.
  2. Search for Windows PowerShell, right-click the result, and select Run as administrator.
  3. Enter the following command and press Enter to reset the Windows Spotlight:
Get-AppxPackage -allusers *ContentDeliveryManager* | foreach {Add-AppxPackage "$($_.InstallLocation)\appxmanifest.xml" -DisableDevelopmentMode -register } 

Hope it works.
