    Lock Screen issues

    About a month or so ago I updated Facebook with a new photo. The photo is the Seahawks Christmas Tree Ornament. I also update my tablet lock screen as well.
    Shortly there after I noticed that my tablet was picking up the old Facebook cover and using it as the main picture and then inserting the new picture as well.
    I have since deleted the "Beast Mode" photo from Facebook but as you can see it is still occurring.
    I have made no changes to Facebook and am at a loss.
    Any ideas

    I googled it and I'm none the wiser.

    I'm guessing something to do with live tiles? My Windows phone picks up my facebook background image for the facebook tile, but my lockscreen image doesn't change; it's set for weather. I don't have a tablet, so I can't speak in that regard.
    Create a fresh drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!

    To me it seems normal to have the picture associated with your account displayed in the lock screen. Using a Microsoft account and having a facebook account linked seems to result in Windows picking up your facebook photo for your account.

    Nothing of what I read in your description seems to indicate that there is something not working as expected.

    After going through every single photo on my Surface, as well as Facebook and OneDrive, I decided to do a refresh. At first everything appeared to be fixed but nah that would have been to good. When the lock screen started overriding again, I took it into the Microsoft Store here in Chandler Az. It was determined that the Lock Screen "cache" was the culprit. Once that was cleaned every thing is now back to normal. One thing now however seems to have popped up. Here is an example. When I have app open from the start menu and close it my tablet switches from the Modern to the desktop. I'm thinking that we did something in the settings fixing the lock screen issue but I'm at a loss as to what it could be.
    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks
