    I just installed Windows 10 on my old Lumia 820 last night and have a question about the lock screen settings.

    I've been using MSN Weather as my lock screen for over about a year. When I select the Background dropdown menu on the lock screen settings after the upgrade, the only options I have are Picture, Bing, Facebook, Twitter, and MapMyRun. MSN Weather is installed.

    I have selected the fast ring for Insider updates, but I am still waiting for build 10512 to finish downloading. I'm currently on build 10166. Would this make a difference for this issue, or is there a problem with MSN Weather no longer supporting the lock screen background feature?

    Well, you might have the new version of MSN Weather (the one with the hamburger menu and all) and I think it doesn't support lockscreen option (yet?)

    I think MSN apps are retiring slowly... MSN health and fitness says it will be anavailable after some time.

    Yes, the app updated to a version with the hamburger menu. I like having the weather information on my lock screen. Any idea if Accuweather or The Weather Channel's apps support the lock screen background?

    This story was posted last month. I haven't seen anything to indicate that MSN Weather will be affected.

    I also upgraded my Lumia mobiles to Windows 10 (first my old 830, now my 640) and, as the weather option wasn't available on lock screen settings, I installed Lockie, a free app from the Windows Store, and I'm using it since then. You can set the lock screen to wathever you want with it - including weather. Works fine here.

    Anyone found a lock screen app for FB photos? Badly missing that since the upgrade to Win 10.
