Sometime back, we discussed the new spotlight feature introduced with Windows 10, and how to save those gorgeous spotlight lock screen images without the help of third-party utilities.
The manual method of saving spotlight lock screen images is relatively easy but requires navigating to Users\YourUserName\AppData\Local\Packages\ Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_cw5n1h2txyewy\ LocalState\Assets folder, and then manually changing file extensions to JPEG.
The problem with this manual method is that you need to do rename file extensions to JPEG format to view them, and more importantly, you might not be able to get all spotlight images.
SpotBright app for Windows 10
SpotBright by T.Partl is a free app to easily download Windows 10 spotlight lock screen images with a few mouse clicks. The SpotBright app makes it easier to collect those awesome spotlight images. More importantly, unlike the manual method, this app will help you download almost all spotlight images from Microsoft servers in a few minutes in high-resolution.
Download spotlight lock screen pictures with SpotBright
Here is how to use the SpotBright app to download spotlight images on a Windows 10 PC.
Step 1: Visit this link of Store and install the SpotBright app.
Step 2: Once installed, open the app. Upon opening the app, you will see the following screen with Fast search and In-depth search options. Click the Fast search if you want to quickly find all spotlights images. Go for the in-depth search option if you don’t mind waiting for a minute or two, but this might find more spotlight pictures.
Click on either Fast search or In-depth option to start the search. In a few seconds to minutes, the app will show how many images are available to download.
Step 3: Click on the Download xxx new pictures button to begin downloading pictures. With default settings, SpotBright saves downloaded pictures in C:\Users\YourUserAccountName\Pictures\SpotBrightfolder, and you can change the default download location by click Settings button and then selecting a new location.
The app downloads two resolutions of every picture. One resolution is 1920×1080, and the other is 1080×1920.
Overall, I am impressed with this app as the app allows you to download almost all spotlight lock screen images with ease. An option to view images without having to download them would have been a great addition to this fantastic app, but it’s an excellent piece of software. SpotBright is a free app.
has anybody found a way to down-load spotbright from another source? i really liked it and all of its features. i would like to down-load it to my new computer.
Well, it was a good idea …
Spotbright stopped working, so I uninstalled it, thinking a reinstall would fix it. The Microsoft store says it is no longer available. The link you provided does not allow you to acquire it.
Spotbright is no longer downloading pictures, I have tried on several Pc’s. Timo has removed the app from the store as well as the DailyPic app..
