Just noticed today on both my computers the lock screen slideshow no longer works. One is build 22000.466 and the other build 22000.438. They will only display the first selected image and after a while go to black screen. No matter what location I select for the slideshow. Anyone else have this problem? Both machines worked fine until the latest builds were installed. Guess it's a minor problem but it's really annoying me.

Hi FrancoDT

is the Slide Show Enabled on your computer? You may adjust this setting in group policy or via registry, see form tutorial for instruction:
Oh yeah, always been enabled and worked great on both machines until recently. Now it doesn't work on either. I noticed on the feedback hub a couple others had the same problem so I'm not the only one. Anyhow in the mean time I set up a screen saver slide show of the same wallpapers and created a hotkey for it as well as set a macro button for it on my keyboard. I know its not a critical part of the operating system but it just annoys me when features don't work as there supposed to especially when they initially work and then get broken by an update. Another lockscreen bug that was never fixed was displaying the weather on the lock screen. Worked in early Win 10 and not since.
