    Default Cortana wont show up at all on my Lock Screen after Windows 10 1709 update

    After Windows 10 1709 update, Cortana won't appear (at all) on my lock screen.

    The Lock screen is set to "picture", all settings are correct.

    Any advice on this?

    As you said you have already checked that lockscreen background is set to Picture or slideshow. Ensure its not set to Windows Spotlight images . Just set it to Spotlight and then set it back to Picture. And Apply.
    Also Check from the region settings, language and speech settings are set to EN-US. If not set it & see if it helps.
    Also check from Settings > Privacy > Location and ensure Location for this device is ON. Try these things & see if it helps.

    As you said I follow the steps you provided, but why I can not find the language and voice settings options.

    Open Settings > Personalization > Lock screen. Choose the apps you want to show quick status.

    Does this help?

    Else create a system restore point first and then see if this freeware Reset Cortana settings helps you.
