    ScreenSavers & Lock Screen Slideshow Conflict


    So I've noticed that whenever you have the Lock Screen Slideshow enabled, the ScreenSaver gets disabled, and vice versa (whenever you have a ScreenSaver enabled, your Lock Screen Slideshow gets disabled). Is this a bug in Windows 8.1, or is there a reason why Microsoft set it this way? (I honestly don't see what the reason could be for this).

    And is there a work-around that I can do to be able to have both enabled?

    Thank you

    I guess there is no solution?
