Windows Spotlight not working

hello,

One thing I want to clear you that before 10 days windows spotlight was in in proper working condition.

Please .....

Hi Bal,

As you may already know, Windows Spotlight frequently changes the photos using Bing to provide an image-of-the-day. This gives everyone a fresher look every time they access their computers. This feature is dependent on the Internet connection and without it, you won’t be able to get yourself that special scenery.


For us to isolate the cause of the issue, we'll be needing additional information:

  • Did you perform any changes prior to the issue?
  • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?
  • Have you tried checking the settings to verify if the lock screen is still set to Windows Spotlight?

Let us know if you have other queries.

Try Brink's fix from the Windows 10 forum: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/82156-reset-re-register-windows-spotlight-windows-10-a.html Follow the instructions to the letter otherwise it'll not work especially where you're asked to change the setting from spotlight to picture before running the fix.
