According to that thread
I need to download a free app from msStore called Spotbright .
But when I get there, spotbright is there , but I can't find anywhere to actually download it . And going to the authors site is no help either .
Has anyone gone thru this whole successfully ?

Spotlight, If Enabled, Should Already Be There

Open Settings-Personalization, then click on the drop down arrow in the Background" section. You should see "Spotlight" listed, as well as "Picture" and "Slide Show". The instructions in the previous link tell how to disable Spotlight IF you have it enabled. If you don't fine, just set it as "Picture".

Once that's done, then to allow a blank page, or colored page, or any other page you want to show at the Lock Screen, click on the "Browse" button in the "Select Picture" section and find the picture of your choice by navigating to it. Select the picture and it should show up in the Lock Screen.

Of course, if you don't have a blank white page, or colored page, etc., then you'll need to save one to your computer from the internet or create one with something from the like the free Irfanview program.

Hope this helps.


Edited because of spelling.

'You should see "Spotlight" listed, as well as "Picture" and "Slide Show".'
No Spotbright option in there .
So I created a 200x200 blackBg.jpg .
Created a Folder named Spotbright .
Dumped blackBg.jpg in there .
And followed the rest of your procedure .
All is well .
Thanks All
