    Windows 8.1 Lock Screen Issue


    I just recently purchased a new PC with Windows 8.1 and I've been trying to change the lock screen picture but every time I try it doesn't actually change. It just stays as the default lock screen picture. In my PC settings it actually shows the picture I want but when I'm on the lock screen it's just the default picture. Does anyone have any ideas about this?

    Thanks

    Do you have "Use only the pictures that will fit best on my screen" checked? try unchecking, it could be the chosen picture size isn't good enough.
