I know it was weak question without pics, but I can't recall how to send them. They are in jpg format.


Note: there 2 screen backgrounds involved.
login screen background - does not appear to have a "Learn about this picture" icon option
background screen after login. - one can choose to have the "Learn about this picture" icon

here are steps to get "Learn about this picture" icon

settings/personalization/lock screen/personalize your lockscreen ... select windows spotlight

settings/personalization/personalize your background ... select windows spotlight

Done with this subject

What I have tried:

I have used the usual windows settings function

This is not a good question - we cannot work out from that little what you are trying to do.
Remember that we can't see your screen, access your HDD, or read your mind - we only get exactly what you type to work with - we get no other context for your project.
Imagine this: you go for a drive in the country, but you have a problem with the car. You call the garage, say "it broke" and turn off your phone. How long will you be waiting before the garage arrives with the right bits and tools to fix the car given they don't know what make or model it is, who you are, what happened when it all went wrong, or even where you are?

That's what you've done here. So stop typing as little as possible and try explaining things to people who have no way to access your project!

Your question has nothing to do with writing code, and is off-topic for this site.

This is CodeProject, not a Microsoft product support forum.

Richard, you are wrong.
I do not think it is off topic and no, I do not view CP has MS product support!
Griff's comments are correct. I could have written my question better. "Live and learn".

If you don't think this question is off-topic, then please explain how it relates to writing code.

We get plenty of new users posting non-programming-related "how do I do <x> in <product>" questions, all of which are closed as off-topic. Why should veterans get a pass on that?

This forum is for asking questions about writing code, not for general computer support.

Not all postings are about writing code but I understand your words
I got the info I needed
Us old guys are sometimes like kids.

I think I know what you're talking about ... maybe.

Google for "windows spotlight information not showing" and see if any of the discussions help.

Helps thanx. Got it figured out.
yeah is was in locked screen options. Not exactly obvious, but seems to work. The learn about picture icon is not so obvious either on a busy desktop. Fixed that.
