Preferred Solution: How do I get the weather on glance screen and interactive lock screen at the same time?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I had weather on the glance screen when it first updated but removed it in favor of glance background but now I can't get weather back, what can I do?

Answer:Weather on glance screen?

Settings -> glance screen: Background App = ON
Settings -> lock screen: Background = Weather
That should do it.

Hi everyone. As you probably know from the title, my problem is that even after multiple attempts, weather information does not appear on my glance screen. I installed the update for the glance screen. Restated my phone. Set weather as my background app in lock screen settings and opened it many many times. Still no dice....anyone who has done, can you please list the procedure here. It would be very helpful to me and many many more people.

I'm trying to enable the new features in glance, but I can't seem to succeed. I've installed the update to glance, and the weather app update, restarted the phone, but our still doesn't show up when the phone is locked. All other things that are on the lockscreen do show up (badges and aditional info).
Any ideas?

I have The Weather app permissions set to allow it to display the weather on the lock screen. This has been working fine for some time -- up until now.

Now it only shows alerts, not the temperature. Any idea how to fix this?

Answer:Windows Weather and Lock Screen -- Weather not showing

To get the weather to show on the lock screen TWO things are needed:

Give the Weather app permision to access the lock screen.Tell the lock screen what you want to see.
I think number 2 is set up by default and I think I set up number 1 myself. This was enough to make it work.

Somewhere along the line I mucked up number 2. I do remember experimenting in that area.

Answer:Weather on Lock screen

I don't think the Weather Channel app can be set as the Lock Screen image provider in Windows 10 Mobile - the same seems to be true for MSN Weather.
I've got several weather apps installed, and only these can be set as lock screen from my app list (in no particular order, and I've got the Weather Channel app and MSN Weather installed):

Not that I use lock screen much but was just curious. Has anyone seen the weather on it? I've never seen it work on any PC. Other features work ok, like tips, or calendar and mail. But weather has never ever shown up. Maybe there is a special trick to it other than the obvious way of adding to the lock screen?

got brand new lumia 640xl but the glance screen does not show date or weather or background photo.
although notifications are shown by the glance screen.

Answer:[L640XL] Glance screen not showing details except time?

It's either in battery save mode, or you didn't enable it (date, detailed status, quick status, background photo) in Glance. Also MS Weather won't show up unless it's opened in Lock screen and stored on the phone. BTW only MS Weather will show weather, the other weather apps will only show their background. You also have to choose Calendar in Lock screen to show detailed status...did you try to read up on how to or did you just assume things would enable themselves ? many think they do.

Hello, I like seeing AM/PM on any time value. I already know if it's AM or PM, but it looks more Proper to see the AM or the PM with whatever time it is.

What Registry modification/Program can help me achieve this?

Thanks

Answer:AM/PM For The Time At The Lock Screen

You can change the time format, how time is shown on Windows notification area freely but AM / PM is regardless of your settings never shown in Windows Clock and lock screen if 24 hour clock has been selected.

To change how time is shown on Windows desktop, select Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Region, click Additional settings:



Now change time formats manually typing any of the following values for short time. Add :ss for long time for seconds:

h:mm
12 hour clock, no leading zero, no AM / PM

h:mm tt
12 hour clock, no leading zero, with AM / PM

hh:mm
12 hour clock, with leading zero, no AM / PM

hh:mm tt
12 hour clock, with leading zero, with AM / PM

H:mm
24 hour clock, no leading zero, no AM / PM

H:mm tt
24 hour clock, no leading zero, with AM / PM

HH:mm
24 hour clock, with leading zero, no AM / PM

HH:mm tt
24 hour clock, with leading zero, with AM / PM

Here I have selected 24 hour clock with AM / PM, but it's only shown in notification area. Opening clock does not show AM / PM, nor does lock screen, whatever settings I have chosen as long as I am using 24 hour clock:



Using 12 hour clock AM / PM is always shown in Clock and lock screen if selected.

Is there any way to keep the lock screen from shutting me down if I don't do anything on the keyboard for a minute or 2 minutes, or whatever it is? I followed some instructions that I found on the internet that involve adding ".bak" or ".backup" to the lock screen file in "SystemApps" but it didn't have any effect.

Hello, I used to use a reg file for Windows 8.1 to customize the time until the screen turns off during the Lock Screen Time Out. I want to know if that command still applies for Windows 10.

The reg file command is:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Lock Screen]
"SlideshowDuration"=dword:000493e0
(where the screen turns off after 5 minutes).

I have the formula to figure out what you need to calculate to insert after "dword" for the amount of time until the screen times out (goes black). Ask me for the formula... as long as the above works.

Thanks

I frequently am logging in and out of my Windows 8.1 laptop. I have a good, secure password that I use and because I'm human, sometimes I mistype it. The issue is that on these occasions, I am locked out for a good 30 seconds from attempting to
login, even for the second time.

I can understand the time delay if it were say, my 5th or 6th attempt, but for one attempt this is entirely too long. How do I go about significantly reducing this, or ideally removing it?

Thank you very much!

So, I have searched the internet for what I am trying to find but the only thing that comes up is how to add a timer that will turn the display off after a certain time WHILE the lock-screen is on. That's not what I am asking.

What I am asking is if there is a way to auto-lock the computer after a certain amount of time. I know you can activate a screensaver after a certain amount of time, and then once touched again it will show up at the lockscreen. That's not what I want. I have the lock-screen setup to play a slideshow of pictures that I want to play when not in use. (This is a 58" touchscreen display that is used to interact with a powerpoint presentation in a public area). If I leave the desktop screensaver option on, it'll turn off the lockscreen slides. Why does that matter if the slideshow is running you may be asking? Well, I have a script on the desktop of this computer that will lock the computer with a single click. This is because when someone is done doing a presentation, I want them to be able to lock the screen immediately so that when they walk away someone can't just walk by and start messing with a wide-open computer.

So, idk if this is possible or if someone has a better solution but i'd appreciate any input.

Hi,

apologies if this has been covered before somewhere else.
I am trying to remove the time and date from the lock screen. having searched I have seen several customisation options but the only one that actually covered this specifically was to make a change in regedit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SystemProtectedUserData\S-1-5-21-x-x-x-x\AnyoneRead\LocaleInfo

this brought about issues relating to administrator accounts which seem to be a common problem with windows 8.1.
nearly all of the solutions were not available to me but I finally found I could make the change in regedit by changing ownership of the file and changing the format of the time to a space. unfortunately the date is still showing.
how can I remove the date?

further, just to clarify, does the original account I signed in with have full administrator privileges? are they disabled and need to be enabled?
ive seen the tutorial on the built in elevated administrator account, this didn't work on its own either. do some files require a change of ownership to be altered regardless of which account you are signed in with including the administrator account?

any help appreciated

thanks

Brad

Welcome to the TenForums @Taukonza

Could you please review your update history and see if any updates for Windows or Drivers were installed in last week?

You mentioned when you boot. Not sure if this is happening on restart or power on or both. If it is power on booting can I suggest a quick test. Open a command prompt (admin) and type

powercfg -h off

This will disable hibernation and in turn Fast Startup. Test. If no change you can re-enable by typing

powercfg -h on

After you boot have you reviewed your Event Viewer to see if Windows is kicking out any serious errors to the system log?

Hello,
First I want to point out that the "Play a slide show on the lock screen" is not the option that I'm looking for, since it remembers the original image that was set for the lock screen after I log back in, or restart the computer.

I am looking for an option that will always load a random picture from a certain folder to appear as my lock screen, every time the lock screen appears.
So for example, I turn on the computer and I see Image #1. I log into my account and after a few minutes I lock the computer. When I lock the computer, I want to see Image #7 as the lock screen. Now I restart the computer. Windows shuts down and starts up again. I am now at the lock screen again. I want to see Image #4. (The reason why those image numbers are like that is because they're random).

So does anyone know of an option in Windows that can do that, or a 3rd party program that can do that?

Thanks so much

Hey guys, I have been having a pretty major dilemma with my computer. So basically:
A few days ago (January 11, 2018), I downloaded the new windows update (forget the name every time ). It was initially working out quite well. Fast forward to like four o' clock, when I leave home for a few hours. I then come back to my computer, awakening it from its sleep, and then the lock screen is utterly broken. It appears as a white screen with red and green (maybe blue too???) lines running to and fro. My cursor as well appeared as a jumbled mess of black pixels. I have been dealing with this dilemma for the past few days (today is January 16 2018 at time of writing), and I have had no luck searching for help. If you have any knowledge of what is happening, or can offer help, then please offer it, that will be wonderful.
EDIT: Oh, forgot to include this, but I have tried a malwarebytes scan (probably at January 12, 2018), but it did not come up with anything important.

Will user with 512mb ram have glance screen?

Answer:Glance screen

Even though having the Glance feature or not has absolutely nothing to do with the amount of RAM available, it's rather unlikely that 512 MB devices have it. I'm not saying that no 512 MB Lumia doesn't have it, as I honestly don't know which device supports certain features, but considering the fact that 512 MB devices are low end ones you can get pretty cheap, they all lack certain components that would increase their price. Glance needs a specific display component in order to work. Since this would add additional cost, I doubt 512 MB devices have it.

Each time I use it I need to soft reset the phone to firstly get the clock rotated the correct way around and secondly to remove something that obscures the screen, like a black box on top of the clock, as the clock is often 50% hidden behind it.
I would rather not delete the app, as it is the only game that I play and I have achieved a lot through hours of play. If I delete it, I would loose all of this and there is no certainty that the fault would be fixed.
Are you aware what this obscuring box this might be? It seems to be positioned at the top bottom of the screen, but the screen is upside down, so it reality it may be at the top.

Answer:There is something obscuring my glance screen, how can I get rid of it?

Hi,
If the issue is still there can we get a photo? Use a different phone.. Also might help to know which phone you're using and what setting you have glance on? peek/always on/intermittent

Hi guys,
Kindly let me know, what is the issue?, As recently i have replaced the LCD screen with digitizer for my lumia 720 , After that everything is working perfectly however Glance screen is keep on flickering instead of stay constant and also Double tap to wake is not working...
If anybody aware of this issue do let me know how to get this fix.
Thanks

Answer:Why my glance screen is keep flickering ?

Difficult to say. But if you did not use an original OEM version than that could explain it . Because both glance and double tap to wake are depend on lcd and digitizer.

hi all, I'm using a lumia 920 and I recently updated my phone to WP 8.1. I remember the first day or two, my glance screen was working perfectly. However after that time, its not working. I even checked it into my phone's settings but the page shows just blank. I mean there are no settings on the Glance screen page, can you imagine that??
I tried pushing this app through web windowsphonestore but still no help... have any idea??

Answer:Glance Screen disappeared on WP8.1

Try Sysappusher. Should update you to the latest version of glance. Once updated, go to Glance in Settings. It should ask for a restart. All should be working afterwards....

Somewhere on this forum I read that there is a type of screen that "turns off pixels for black color" and thus doesn't consume much battery (with black wallpaper for example). I have Lumia 928 and in darkness when I look at glance screen I know it doesn't turn off. I really don't care about it at all. But its interesting
What type of screen do I have, what screen(s) turns off pixels for black color, and which Lumia phones WITH Glance have that type of screen???
I know I could Bing/Google it, but my internet is very slow now, so it's easier for me to ask here
Thanx in advance

Answer:Glance and Screen types

You have an OLED screen which displays only the pixels it needs to same as AMOLED, LCD or IPS LCD the whole screen demands power even displaying black.

So it seems pretty strange that as an IT guy, I get the strangest of the strange issues with my own computer. One of the issues that I've realized is that for the most part i have problems seeing any interactive weather information from various weather sites. This includes intellicast.com and wunderground.com. I prefer to use Google Chrome (latest update), but I've tried using IE 11 as well. The only one that seems to work is wunderground on IE and that is hit or miss.
 
My computer is running Windows 7 x64. We currently have Symantec Endpoint Protection 12 installed, and I also have Java 7u67 and Flash 14 installed.
 
Has this been a known issue or what else could be causing this? Not super important, but not knowing for a long time has been bothering me. Could it be firewall related, and if so is there a way to know? Typically if our firewall blocks something there is a notification on the page that Watchguard has prevent it's access... this doesn't happen in this case.
 
Thanks!

Answer:Weather Website Interactive Maps; Browsers have issues with overlays

I find that problems of this nature are usually "Flash" or "JavaScript" related.  Possibly your AV is blocking some elements of either from certain sites?
With the exception of intellicast, I haven't had problems with any of the weather related sites that I frequent.  Among those, wunderground, weather.com, the weather broadcasts from local affiliate stations(CBS, Fox, etc).
With the interactive map on intellicast, it takes several seconds trying to "initialize the map" and then gives the messages:
Attention Required
Map unable to load
The Map loading has timed out.
Probably because I'm blocking several google elements on the page as well as beacons from other sites.
Don't believe Java is your problem in this case, I don't have it installed and that hasn't caused me any problems.
Almost forgot, I'm not using IE 11 or Google Chrome, but I am running Windows 7 x64 SP1 and (soon to be replaced)McAfee LiveSafe.

I've tried searching through the forum but can't see anyone who has a similar issue.

I can access the lock screen settings and I can see all available apps and have set a detailed status app and a couple of less detailed ones. However, when I actually get to the lock screen after having set the apps to appear, there is nothing but the time and date and WiFi in bottom-right corner.

Could this be because I am logging in locally rather than using a MS account?

Can anyone tell me how to eliminate the lock screen preview and bypass the 'Sign In' button on the lock screen?

I often put my computer to sleep then to bring it back (in Windows 7) I would simply hit the space bar and turn on my mouse and it would go straight to my desktop. Now, I hit the space bar turn on my mouse, and it takes me to the lock screen preview then I hit the space bar and it takes me to a lock screen where I have to click 'Sign In' even though I have no password set.

I'm guessing I'll no longer be able to hit the spacebar, turn on my mouse and go directly to the desktop but if I can hit the spacebar, turn on the mouse, then hit the space bar one last time, that would be satisfactory.

Answer:Lock Screen Preview and Lock Screen nuisance

Turns out, the instructions I found to not require a password at the sign in screen did the trick for me.

I've had lots of Lumias , ie 800, 920, 925, 1020, 1320 and by comparison the Glance doesn't seem nearly as bright as others I've had. Especially in daylight it's difficult to see.

I have the Nokia Lumia 1520 and I've asked this and explained it already but the solution didn't work. If I change things in my setting, like turn things on or off that weren't already off, my phone will freeze. Like my glance screen, I can't use it because my phone freezes if I do. Also at random times my phone just freezes while it's locked and I have to restart it to get it to work again but it still happens after that. Someone told me to turn my data off and take Cortana off my screen and see if it worked, but it didn't. Can someone please help? I might just reset my phone because that seems like it will work. Thank you

Hello there! This is my first post and I have to say I am glad being part of the WP world!
I recently purchased a red Nokia Lumia 720, I'm very happy with the phone.
Being able to synch contacts and calendars to my Mac was a top priority, so I installed WP 8.1 dev preview.
It all went well until I begun to notice problems with my glance screen.
At first, it disappeared and after a reboot It would come back again.
Now it's gone for good and after trying a lot of very sensible things I read online I decided to ask for some HELP!!!
This are the symptoms:
1- When I boot my phone up, I lock it and for a fraction of a second I can see the glance screen, then it disappears and it won't show up again unless I reboot.
2- The glance screen settings open up, but they are all greyed out!
This is what I have tried so far:
1- Soft reset
2- Setting date & time to year 2110, forcing to uninstall glance screen and then re-installing with Sysappusher
3- Hard reset: backed up the phone and performed hard reset reinstalling back from backup and re-installing all apps as per requested by the Store.
Ok as you can see I've done my best to try everything at reach. Such a shame since glance screen is one the features that I love most from my Lumia.

I've been on the Windows Mobile 10 build for a while now (and on the latest update) but despite of having the Glance screen settings, the Glance screen doesn't seem to work. The screen on my 830 always remains black.
Anyone with the same issue ?
Thx.

Answer:Lumia 830 Glance screen not working.

I've been using my 830 from a year and never had any issues with glance. There was a brief time between certain WM10 builds when glance settings wasn't accessible directly but it still worked. What you could try is to perform a hard reset and install the latest glance update for WM10 and it should work unless it's a hardware issue.

Is there a solution that wouldn't require a factory reset?
Thanks for your answers!

How do we set up the Glance Screen on Lumia 1520 (WP8.1) ? What can be displayed there ?
Peek, interval . . . What/how does this work ?
Thanks,

Answer:Lumia 1520 - Glance Screen how to

Just go to settings and scroll down to Glance. There you can set various notification settings etc. it also works with the MSN weather app (it'll display the weather info on glance screen) but only if you have the weather app set up as your lock screen also ( in lock screen settings).
"Peek" is the most popular setting. With peek, the Glance screen will come on according to signals from the proximity sensor. In other words, say you have your phone in your pocket (proximity sensor closed)... You pull your phone out of your pocket, (proximity sensor open) and Glance comes on.
It also works by just laying your phone down on a surface (table/desk etc) the glance screen will come on just by waving your hand over the phone (activating the proximity sensor) that way, if your hands are dirty, you don't have to touch your phone to see any missed calls, texts, emails, Skype messages, weather info, the list goes on...
Btw, welcome to the site, and the 1520 club! I love mine... and I LOVE Glance!

My Lumia 950 (ATT) is my alarm clock. I have a qi stand so I can see the time whenever I need to thanks to the always on glance screen.
However, since the last update, once the phone is fully charged it constantly switches between the glance screen and the lock screen. I think it's the phone turning the qi off and on because it's fully charged. Each time it enables charging the lock screen comes on momentarily. It wouldn't be a big deal except the lock screen is MUCH brighter and wakes me up.
Anybody else have this, or is it just my phone being a butthead?

Have you tried a soft reset? Vol down and power button until phone vibrates? I've not come across this and like you, I charge overnight so that the glance screen stays on whilst charging. Have you got a pad or a dock? I have noticed that when charging is interrupted, the lock screen does appear, but that is when I remove the USB-C. I've not noticed it on my Qi pad.
Why not join the forums and gain access to those who have a better understanding of Qi Charging, and a wealth of W10M information and knowledge to help you make the most of your 950!!

The glance screen of Microsoft Lumia 640 is separating in parts.

Answer:Glance screen is separating in parts, how can I stop it doing this?

Glance screen is a software package that displays info when your phone is locked and "Off." Are you saying the information displayed is garbled?
Or do you mean the physical screen hardware components are separating?
In case of the Glance info... Do a Soft Reset, hold the Volume Down + Power buttons until the phone reboots and vibrates. It will clear "gunk" out of system memory. If that fails, reset your phone with the first tool on this page: FAQ - How can I recover/reset/restore my phone software? - Microsoft - USA
In case of the physical components separating: seek warranty repair or replacement.

After being on Fast ring for about a year (extensive testing, restarting phone, trying (RIP) Astoria and other new stuff on WP10 and Lumia 1520 I finally managed today to revert it to 8.1. Why? Well because in one of DEV builds, something went horribly wrong. I have lost Glance, Hey Cortana and USB connection to PC (and no, it wasn't the cables, drivers or hardware issue - it was Windows Phone 10 that broke all that). It was broken to the point where I haven't been able to revert to WP 8.1 since computer and WDRT couldn't detect my phone. It was plaguing me for the last couple of builds. I had hopes in release build, which I have found out that I already had being on Insider Fast Ring. After some CRAZY messing around, I managed to revert the phone to 8.1 and all of the sudden all the stuff that were broken are working now (USB, Hey Cortana, Glance and God knows what else that was broken).
So yeah, this probably will not help you with Glance issue (which I doubt its isolated case since I had the same issue on Nokia Lumia 1520), which probably will be fixed in next couple of patches. Until then, I am staying on 8.1 and keeping my Automatic updates turned off...

Unfortunately, this has been completely removed, and as it looks, it took a lot of important text with it, not just yours. Maybe a backup recovery? Probably not though, especially if you don't want to go through the hassle. Simple answer: Sorry, your text is lost. Blame Redmond :(
