Hello, I just updated to the latest beta build 22621.160, and I noticed that the desktop spotlight won't change to another image, just stuck to W11 bloom.
Is this intended at the moment?

Yes, I had that on one machine. First, turn off Spotlight wherever you are using it, desktop or lock screen, then reset it, then turn it back on. That fixed it for me.

Thanks for the suggestion. Sadly, that method didn't fix my spotlight. After scouring the internet, I end up using Dynamic Theme app.

And one more thing, I'm currently connected to a phone hotspot because my modem is under repair. Might be the cause.

Hi there
I installed an another theme rather than the standard Issue ones after an initial Windows install. Get loads more from the store.
Spotlight working OK. I didn't notice it wasn't working but in any case it's working now on this build.

Incidentally if you installed any Custom themes from W10 they all seem to work these days on W11 if you want to keep them.

Cheers
jimbo
