Which build? IIRC, 10240 did not ship with Spotlight for the Pro edition. If it's either 10586 or 14393, you should have it. Unless, of course, it was never available for the N editions.

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.14393]

As I understand N version is without Media Player and Media Center. Obviously it is also without Spotlight, i Think.

Yes, N is without Spotlight (or it is disabled somehow). The task is to enable it or add it to the system.

Using the ling above I'd manage to disable the ability to change the option between Picture and Slideshow just to enable this in group policy:
User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Cloud Content\Configure Spotlight on lock screen

No spotlight yet :(

Works well. Thanks! But this is not true Windows feature. I'm looking an option how to enable/transfer original windows feature to N edition...

It is funny but I don't have such kind of a button. Only field for answer and Submit....
Hi You don't have the option to quote of the forum? That is not funny.:wink: That sounds serious to me.:grin:
