Like the previous versions of Windows, Windows 10 also comes with beautiful pictures. It shows a default picture from Windows Spotlight as the background image of the Lock screen. Apart from the Lock screen picture, date and time are also visible in the bottom left corner of the screen. Windows Spotlight images are downloaded from the internet and are very beautiful images, but they change periodically. If someone does not like the Lock Screen and want to disable, the same is possible by modifying Registry values or Group Policy.


If you want to use your own images as a slideshow, it can be done with a tweak. The Windows 10 also offers to add some extra app information from several apps like you can choose from calendar, weather, messaging, email, etc.
