    How do I Add a New Picture to Local Account so it can be seen on the

    Hey guys

    I switched to a local account. When I reboot the PC I can't see a picture. It's just a grey icon. How do I get a picture to show there. The only time I see a picture now is if I'm using my Microsoft Account. Thanks ☺

    Anyone? I know when I use my Microsoft Account I get my picture in the bootscreen. But how do you get one for the local account? Is just a grey icon?

    Haha. So again, if I use my Microsoft Account and have to enter a password at boot (I get the the picture on the splash screen) but in a local account it is grey.

    I'm now wondering if it's possible to get a picture?
