We all know that Windows Spotlight feature displays beautiful wallpapers on your lock screen and changes with new wallpaper everyday. If you’re on Windows 10 Version 1511 or later, you can enable this feature from Settings app > Personalization > Lock Screen.
When you see Windows Spotlight wallpaper on lock screen and hover cursor over this wallpaper, you’ll spot ‘Like what you see‘ option. Clicking this option provides you the pathway to receive similar kind of wallpaper or deny, if you don’t like the wallpaper. In case if ‘Like what you see’ option is missing for you, here is how to restore it back.
FIX: ‘Like What You See’ Missing For Windows Spotlight
FIX 1 – Via Lock Screen Options
1. Right click Start Button or press + X keys and select Settings.
2. In the Settings app, navigate to Personalization > Lock screen.
3. Now in right pane of Lock screen, under Background, set the option to Picture. Then restore back this option to Windows Spotlight again.
4. Press + L keys and check if ‘Like what you see’ option is restored now.
If issue still persists, see FIX 2 below.
FIX 2 – Via Registry
It is strongly recommended that you create a System Restore point first before editing registry.
1. Press + R and put
regedit in Run dialog box to open Registry Editor (if you’re not familiar with Registry Editor, then click here). Click OK.
2. In left pane of Registry Editor window, navigate to following registry key:
3. In the right pane of Creative registry key, double click on
LockImageFlags registry DWORD (REG_DWORD) to modify its Value data.
4. Now change the Value data from 1 to 0 and click OK. Close Registry Editor and reboot.
After restarting your system, the issue must be resolved.
FIX 3 – Re-register Windows Spotlight
In case if FIX 1 & 2 can’t solve your problem, you can then try to re-register Windows Spotlight feature. Refer this guide:
We hope after re-registering Windows Spotlight, finally ‘Like what you see’ option will be restored.
