Change Lock Screen Image in Windows 8.1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I cannot change my Lock Screen image in Windows 8.1. During my laptop setup, I imported a Facebook cover photo and now I want to change it. I read many answers in Microsoft Community but whatever I tried, nothing worked. A reply directed me here. I hope you can help.
    I have tried:
    - Settings → PC and devices → Lock screen. Whatever I do, the dots just spin forever.
    - changing the owner of %ProgramData%\Microsoft\Windows\SystemData to no avail.
    - running the "takeown" command.
    Nothing seems to work for me. Please help.
