Windows Spotlight returns for Pro users of Windows 10 build 10547

For those using Windows 10 build 10547 as part of the Insider program, there is an extra bonus for those with a Pro license of the OS. Microsoft Spotlight is finally back for those with the Pro SKU of the operating system letting them cycle through and vote on various Bing images for their lock screen.

Microsoft Spotlight is something we have covered before including how to use it. However, as we noted although early Insiders had it prior to the 10240 RTM build, it disappeared from those with a Pro SKU once officially released. No indication was given as to why or whether it would return.

How to enable Windows spotlight in Windows 10 to keep your lock screen awesome

Since last night, however, we have had numerous tips from users that they can now select Windows Spotlight under Settings > Personalization > Lock screen > Background. Home users of Windows 10 have already had this and nothing changes for them, but it is great to see those with Pro get in on the action.

Hands-on with Windows 10 build 10547's three new features!

Windows Spotlight changes the lock screen wallpaper for users automatically every 24-hours. Additionally, there is a like / don't like option in the upper right-hand corner. Your votes help shape the types of images Microsoft delivers, and it is a clever and fun way to add some spark to your PC.

Thanks, Dylan C., Evan G., Sarang, and Kenice N., for the tips!
