Lock Screen Setting Not Working

6 discussion posts
I have my settings in DisplayFusion set to use my wallpaper as my lockscreen, but this doesn't appear to be working anymore. I double-checked my config, it's the same as it has been.

Could you attach a debug log?

  • On the DisplayFusion Settings > Troubleshooting tab, change the Logging drop-down to "L1: Log Minimal" and click Apply
  • Try to apply the lock screen settings
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button on the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Reply with the file attached
  • Disable debug logging after sending the log

just want to follow up with this. I haven't actively made any changes to the display fusion settings to cause this.
I notice after unlocking the account, the task bar has to spin up again too as though locking the screen kills display fusion. Not sure if that's what's happening here.

How long does it take for the taskbar to reappear after unlocking? Sometimes it can take a few seconds to reappear, depending on how busy the PC is. Thanks!

Oh just about a second. Not entirely sure if it was always like that, just thought it would be a clue as to why the lock screen wallpaper isn't reflecting what's in the settings.

Something else I noticed that I think is worthy of note. When I uncheck the box for displayfusion to manage my lock screen wallpaper, if I go to the Windows setting for the wallpaper, it doesn't let me change anything there and says the settings are managed by my organization (it's a home computer).
It did also say that when displayfusion was managing the lock screen, but I figured that's expected behavior. However, It managed my wallpaper too and Windows still lets me change that.

Thanks for sending the debug log over! I'm not seeing anything in it about applying the lock screen though. Did you try to apply the settings after enabling debug logging?

This may be a problem with the march update.
My windows10 pro update broke so it wouldn't go into lock screen after screen saver. Even when DF was not running.
look for Inactivity_TimeoutSecs change it to # of seconds 1200 for 2 minutes
Then the regular timeouts set in screensaver will work
At least it did for me.

Yeah the lock screen was applied but I ended up turning it off, manually using windows settings to select a lock screen wallpaper - not sure what it did, but the default images it was using went away and my displayfusion image popped up. I went back to displayfusion and re-enabled it and it seems to be working now. Definitely a windows problem it looks like, but I didn't change anything. I'm sure related to Windows updates...
