Windows 10 Desktop and Lock Screen Background Slideshow Reset to Picture

Today we are going to address a weird and annoying problem present in Windows 10 operating system. As you know Windows 10 allows users to set pictures slideshow as Desktop background as well as Lock Screen background. You can select desired folders containing images and set the slideshow as the background of Desktop and Lock Screen using Settings -> Personalization -> Background and Lock Screen pages.
Sometimes when you set image slideshow as background of Desktop or Lock Screen, after some time it automatically resets to Picture. Recently an AskVG reader "Al" contacted us regarding similar problem. Here is a small excerpt from his comment:
When my lockscreen and wallpapers are both set on slideshow, it works fine, but when I go back in just a few minutes after doing other things, no reboots or anything, they both are set on pictures again. The lockscreen or wallpapers which are two different settings and both change back to pictures from the setting I had saved as slideshow. I've been looking and researching for a week or so with no results. I can't find any way to lock it down in gpedit.msc, tried everything for weeks. I've run scannow and Dism with no help so tell me you have an easy answer for this please. Win version 1703 Build 15063.483. Thanks Al.
So you see the problem occurs when you set Desktop background or Lock Screen background to slideshow and it automatically resets to a picture after some time or immediately.
It seems a bug in Windows operating system. A few readers have reported that it happens when you set images slideshow as background using Settings app and close the app window. As soon as you close Settings window, it forgets the user settings and when you re-open Settings window, the background is set to picture again.
So when you exit from Settings page, it reverts to Picture option for background.
We'll use a workaround to fix this issue. We'll take help of a built-in restriction to prevent changing lock screen and desktop backgrounds. Once we apply this restriction, Windows will stop resetting image slideshow to picture for desktop and lock screen background.
First of all set the slideshow as background of Desktop or Lock Screen using Settings -> Personalization page. but DON'T close the Settings window. Keep it opened.
Now we'll set the restriction using Group Policy Editor program. If you are using Windows 10 Home edition, you'll not be able to use Group Policy Editor because this edition doesn't come with this program. But you can enable Group Policy Editor in this edition using this tutorial. If you still can't use Group Policy Editor, you can apply the restrictions using Registry Editor program as mentioned in the BONUS TIP given at the end of this tutorial.
1. Press "WIN+R" key combination to launch RUN dialog box then type gpedit.msc and press Enter. It'll open Group Policy Editor.
2. Now go to:
User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Control Panel -> Personalization
3. In right-side pane, look for "Prevent changing desktop background" option.
4. The option would be set to Not Configured. Double-click on it and set it to Enabled.
5. Now go to:
Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Control Panel -> Personalization
6. In right-side pane, look for "Prevent changing lock screen and logon image" option.
7. The option would be set to Not Configured. Double-click on it and set it to Enabled.
That's it. Now try to open Settings -> Personalization -> Background or Lock Screen page and you'll see that options to change background are grayed out i.e. disabled. Also a message "Some settings are hidden or managed by your organization" will be shown at the top of the page as shown in following screenshot:
Now Windows will never reset slideshow to picture for Desktop or Lock Screen background.
In future, if you want to change background, first disable the restrictions by changing both options to Not Configured again in Group Policy Editor, then change background using Setting app.
If you can't use or don't want to use Group Policy Editor, you can take help of Registry Editor for the same task. Just follow these simple steps:
1. Press WIN+R keys together to launch RUN dialog box. Now type regedit and press Enter. It'll open Registry Editor.
2. Now go to following key:
3. Create a new key under Policies key and set its name as ActiveDesktop
4. Now select ActiveDesktop key and in right-side pane create a new DWORD NoChangingWallPaper and set its value to 1
5. Again go to following key:
6. In right-side pane create a new DWORD NoChangingLockScreen and set its value to 1
In future, if you want to change background, first disable the restrictions by changing both DWORD values to 0 in Registry Editor, then change background using Setting app.

8th-Generation Intel Core Processors Unveiling Next Week

The processor market is hotting up as AMD and Intel fire shots across one another's bows.

Intel's Kaby Lake chips are still pretty fresh, but AMD's big Ryzen push means that the chip giant is getting ready to talk about its 8th-generation silicon.

8th-generation Intel Core chips, codenamed Coffee Lake, will still be built using a 14-nanometer architecture, but beyond that little is officially known. Unofficially, it seems that what Intel is planning to do is cram more cores into existing chips.
It's widely expected that the desktop versions of the i7 and i5 processors will be bumped to 6-core, and the Core i3 bumped to quad-core, along with some Pentium and mobile chips.
Boosting the number of cores allows Intel to squeeze more power and performance out of its existing silicon architecture before we shift to the 10-nanometer Cannonlake chips.
Intel will livestream the announcement, along with demonstrations, via its Facebook page on August 21, and Intel states that devices powered by these chips will be available to purchase during "the holiday season and even before."

Game of Thrones Pirates Arrested For Leaking Episode Early

Four people have been arrested in connection with the leak of the fourth episode of Game of Thrones' latest season. The leak, which took place early August in advance of its commercial release, carried the watermark 'Star India'. All four men will be detained for a week while an investigation gets underway.
Over the past several years, Game of Thrones has become synonymous with fantastic drama and story telling on the one hand, and Internet piracy on the other. It’s the most pirated TV show in history, hands down.

With the new season well underway, another GoT drama began to unfold early August when the then-unaired episode “The Spoils of War” began to circulate on various file-sharing and streaming sites. The leak only trumped the official release by a few days, but that didn’t stop people downloading in droves.
As previously reported, the leaked episode stated that it was “For Internal Viewing Only” at the top of the screen and on the bottom right sported a “Star India Pvt Ltd” watermark. The company commented shortly after.
“We take this breach very seriously and have immediately initiated forensic investigations at our and the technology partner’s end to swiftly determine the cause. This is a grave issue and we are taking appropriate legal remedial action,” a spokesperson said.
Now, just ten days later, that investigation has already netted its first victims. Four people have reportedly been arrested in India for leaking the episode before it aired.
“We investigated the case and have arrested four individuals for unauthorized publication of the fourth episode from season seven,” Deputy Commissioner of Police Akbar Pathan told AFP.
The report indicates that a complaint was filed by a Mumbai-based company that was responsible for storing and processing the TV episodes for an app. It has been named locally as Prime Focus Technologies, which markets itself as a Netflix “Preferred Vendor”.
It’s claimed that at least some of the men had access to login credentials for Game of Thrones episodes which were then abused for the purposes of leaking.
Local media identified the men as Bhaskar Joshi, Alok Sharma, and Abhishek Ghadiyal, who were employed by Prime Focus, and Mohamad Suhail, a former employee, who was responsible for leaking the episode onto the Internet.
All of the men were based in Bangalore and were interrogated “throughout the night” at their workplace on August 11. Star India welcomed the arrests and thanked the authorities for their swift action.
“We are deeply grateful to the police for their swift and prompt action. We believe that valuable intellectual property is a critical part of the development of the creative industry and strict enforcement of the law is essential to protect it,” the company said in a statement.
“We at Star India and Novi Digital Entertainment Private Limited stand committed and ready to help the law enforcement agencies with any technical assistance and help they may require in taking the investigation to its logical conclusion.”
The men will be held in custody until August 21 while investigations continue.

Google shuts down neo-Nazi site's domain and YouTube channel

Google has pulled domain registration support for the neo-Nazi site The Daily Stormer shortly after it moved from GoDaddy, which had earlier cut it off for violating its terms of service.
The companies revoked the site's internet domain registration in the wake of violent protests in Charlottesville, Virginia.
On Sunday GoDaddy announced on Twitter that the site had 24 hours to find another domain provider as it had violated the terms of service for its support in organizing the white supremacy rally over the weekend.
The site then posted an offensive story about Heather Heyer, the woman killed in the car attack on demonstrators protesting against the rally.
"Given this latest article comes on the immediate heels of a violent act, we believe this type of article could incite additional violence, which violates our terms of service," a company spokesperson said in a statement to ZDNet sister site CNET.
After GoDaddy canceled the registration, the site moved to Google Domains where it remained for several hours before Google confirmed it would also revoke its registration. Google told Bloomberg it had also pulled the site's YouTube channel.
"We are canceling Daily Stormer's registration with Google Domains for violating our terms of service," a Google spokesman said.
Google's rules for web support and advertising prohibit content that incites violence.
The site currently isn't loading. Neither Google nor GoDaddy hosted The Daily Stormer's content, but as domain providers, they directed internet users and search engines to its URL.
The site's owner, Andrew Anglin, pointed readers to its channel on voice chat app, Discord, which said it had shut down related accounts.
Facebook also confirmed on Monday that it had removed the event page used to promote and organize the Unite the Right rally.
"Facebook does not allow hate speech or praise of terrorist acts or hate crimes, and we are actively removing any posts that glorify the horrendous act committed in Charlottesville," the company said in a statement to Reuters.
Facebook's chief operating officer Sheryl Sanberg posted a response to the rally, saying she was "heartbroken" by the events of this weekend.

You can remove a website from the top sites section by right-clicking on it and then clicking Remove option, or by clicking the close sign on the tile.
Microsoft Edge automatically adds websites to top sites section of new tab page based on your browsing history. If it finds that you are visiting a website more often than a website that is already in the top sites section, it automatically replaces the least visited site in the top sites section with the new one.
Edge also allows you pin a website to the top sites section of the new tab. When you pin a website to the top sites section, Edge will not automatically remove it, even if you don’t visit that website very often in future.
