Windows 10 has a feature called Windows Spotlight which fetches beautiful images from the internet and set them as background on the Lock Screen. These images are only for Lock screen and you cannot use them as your desktop wallpaper. However, there is a way to download windows spotlight images to your system and then use them as you want. If you are using windows 10 and are not aware of this feature, just right click on the desktop, Select Personalize and then Lock Screen and select Windows Spotlight option under Background. If you are not seeing spotlight option, read my previous post regarding fixing the Windows spotlight feature.
