    I too can't open the PC Settings app in Windows 8.1, and I like it; however, I can access everything in it by other methods except for Lock Screen in PC and devices.

    I have tried on my own quite extensively to find a way to no avail.

    Is there an alternative way to set-up a lock screen slide show other than using PC Settings?

    I don't know how I broke the PC Settings, but it's only for one user and I use that for the Standard User when deploying machines.

    The greatest benefit for having it broken for that the user is they can't set-up a 4 digit pin to bypass the complex password.

    All deployments are a standalone environment so the GPO for not allowing the pin won't work as it requires Active Directory Domains.
