    Heya all. So glance background will not allow me to install on build 10512, has everyone else noticed this. Any workarounds?
    By far it's my favorite feature!

    Hmm... are you sure it wasn't there? Have a look under Storage -> Phone -> Apps and games. It should be there....

    On prior builds glance had a habit of going away if you did a hard reset.

    I kind of wonder if it's another thing on the list MS is getting rid of. Next major release they'll probably decide to get rid of Cortana, lol.

    Yeah, Same for me.
    I have a Lumia 820. I still had Glance after the Update (and it worked fine)... It was gone after a hard reset :(
    If anyone knows a work around it... Please share.

    No workaround that I know of. This happened to me with both 10166 & 10512. It worked fine after the upgrade, but not after a hard reset. After a hard reset it is gone. I would suggest that you use the Windows Feedback app to tell Microsoft that you need this feature, and cannot find its settings any longer.

    Yes thx, this is a workaround for glance screen, which I always use, though I'm referring to glance background, the ability to apply background images to the stand by screen. Any word on that would be appreciated.

    Doesn't it just use your lock screen image now?

    Glance is eating up my damn battery. Hope we can disable it on the next build.
