Windows 10 daily images; how to enable for domain-joined machines


Recommended Posts

One of the nicer features introduced with Windows 10 was the daily (or frequent) image push they give you on the 'lock' screen.  I don't know the correct terminology for this feature, which is probably why I can't search for the solution (if any) I'm looking for.  Basically, I have some domain-joined Win 10 machines and they don't seem to be able to receive these daily images.  I cannot find any setting anywhere to enable it. 


Basically, when you 'lock' your device (Windows Key + L, or just let it lock with user inactivity) you are presented with a random image from Microsoft, and you are offered a 'Like what you see?' link, which on 'hover' tells you more about it, and lets you 'Like' it or say 'I'm not a fan', which refines what you see next time.  


One of my domain joined users keeps asking me if I can enable this for her and I just can't seem to find anything about the feature! 


EDIT TO ADD: Posting this inspired me to take another stab at searching, and I discovered this feature is called "Windows Spotlight". This windows post Configure Windows Spotlight on the lock screen (Windows 10) - Configure Windows | Microsoft Docs suggests it's available in all editions, and is enabled by default; so I'm not sure why my domain joined users are not seeing it.  I will poke around some more in settings and GP ...

This page seems to describe how to set it up and how to manage it from GP.  Maybe it is disabled in your domain?


[Edit] Nevermind, ha, that's the exact same link you posted in your edit...
