S340 lock screen picture not changing

2019-09-22, 5:44 AM

With the Spotlight setting it is supposed to bring in a new image every day, but my new s340 is not. Everything is up to date. 

I tried all the recommended fixes. 

I wonder if other S340 owners see the picture changing?

Hi CliveBlu! Try the steps here:

1. Open Settings.
2. Click on Personalization.
3. Click on Lock screen.
4. Under "Background," make sure Windows Spotlight is NOT selected and change the option to Picture or Slideshow.
5. Use the Windows key + R keyboard shortcut to open the Run command.
6. Type the following path and click OK.

%USERPROFILE%/AppData\Local\Packages\https://lnv.gy/2pOxBU8.ContentDeliveryManager_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\Assets

7. Select all the files (Ctrl + A) and hit the Delete key to clear all old images (if applicable).
8. Use the Windows key + R keyboard shortcut to open the Run command again.
9. Type the following path to where the Windows Spotlight settings are stored and click OK.

%USERPROFILE%/AppData\Local\Packages\https://lnv.gy/2pOxBU8.ContentDeliveryManager_cw5n1h2txyewy\Settings

10. Right-click settings.dat and roaming.lock individually, then click Rename and name them settings.dat.bak and roaming.lock.bak.
11. Restart your computer.
12. Open Settings.
13. Click on Personalization.
14. Click on Lock screen.
15. Under "Background," make sure to enable Windows Spotlight.

Once you complete these steps, you can lock your PC (Windows key + L), and the Lock screen should show new Bing images.

If everything worked as expected, remember to go back to the Settings folders where Windows Spotlight stores the settings and delete the settings.dat.bak and roaming.lock.bak files. Update us how it goes.

Thanks for the detailed reply. 

I tried this and many similar methods. 

The only one that actually worked was the following. 

The main difference is stopping the services at the end of the video.
