Lock Screen Slideshow stopped working
Yesterday after updating windows version to the latest version my lock screen slideshow just stopped working only shows my wallpaper "which i have set before i started using slideshow" in option pictures. I have already tried fix like changing the Advance settings, removing the folder and re-adding it again, uninstalling the updates and more but the lock screen slideshow still doesn't work. If someone knows how to fix this issue please tell me i use this feature to prevent burning on my display.
Windows 20H2 remote desktop lock screen has no auth widget
Is this supposed to be the new forum after answers.microsoft.com? That site does not appear to have buttons to post new topics. I just updated my desktop computer to Windows 10 20H2. Typically I control it from my laptop via remote desktop, and now notice that after idle timeout, the lock screen blocks the desktop but remains blurred, with no authentication widgets in the centre to ask for my password. Only the [Language] [Ease of access] [Power] buttons in the bottom corner are interactive. I can't otherwise "nudge" the lock screen "awake" with any input. The only option is to disconnect and reconnect again in order to sign back into its desktop. Is there some new secret to get it working normally like before?
HELP..-files locked after updating windows7 to windows10
I recently updated my windows 7 to windows 10. Realised my google drive folder, in window.old (that has been carried in from windows 7) seem to be encrypted, it has a lock sign. I have tried decryption it by various methods available, nothing seems to work, (changed security attribute, changed ownership, tried command prompt decryption) however no luck :( . The folder was not synced with the cloud hence a lot of files in the folder were sitting on my local drive. Now I can't access them at all. I understand window.old folder will automatically delete after 30 days, and I have about 10 days left to get access to these otherwise all may be deleted. Any help to rescue these would be much appreciated. Note: 1- I had backed up this folder on my external hard drive, and have realised the same issue appearing on the external hd. 2- This particular folder is google drive folder, however it wasn't synced as the capacity was exceeded. I hope the issue is understandable, and I hope someone will have solution on this as I am completely exhausted trying to recover these work files.

Lock Screen Picture (Slideshow etc.) Fixed?
Someone mentioned this before.... since it didn't work for myself i even tried registry editor and this location 'C:\Windows\Web\Screen' no use, even deleting default pictures and replacing them did not work, the 'img103.png' after replacing would even show my new picture when i choosed slideshow....but only in the small preview..........which gave me the final clue 'how to' and 'why' :) solution is so dumb and so easy that i can't even think of why i did not checked it before; possible solution: Personalize->Lock Screen , now choose whatever you want, for example 'Slide show' and then choose folder with pictures now go to the folder with pictures, (unfortunately im not sure if there is a way to do that for more than one picture); right click on the picture-> Properties-> General(the tab) , now on the bottom on the right side select 'Unblock' then 'Apply' and obviously 'OK' ; done, for any picture you unblock, your slide show will win one more picture; this solved the problem for me pretty much it's bcoz the pics come from the internet :| this will happen with more than just pictures altho screensaver still works with all pictures, even with the unblocked ones, so i assume one of the updates made the lock screen settings ignore all blocked pictures

What do you use for your desktop background? Lock screen?
What do you use for your wallpapers? I've been using Bing Desktop, which changes your desktop background every day to the lovely pictures provided by Bing (they also do the daily pictures on your Lock Screen before you log in). I would say many users I see (I work in a Microsoft Store as a Services Advisor) usually have some place they went on vacation or a picture of their family. I've even seen some people have a slideshow as their background, to change to different pictures on an interval.
