Step-1: Right-click anywhere on your desktop and click on Personalise.
Step-2: You will be directed to the Personalisation section in the Settings app. Click on the Lock screen option in the right pane.
Step-3: To change your lock screen background, click on the drop-down menu next to Personalise your lock screen. Windows spotlight is the default setting that provides images by Microsoft. The other two options that you can choose are Picture and Slideshow.
