    How to remove user picture from login screen, but keep it elsewhere?

    I have changed my login screen background picture using Windows 10 Login Screen Changer (available at the MyDigitalLife forums). Unfortunately, the option to Disable User Account picture won't work for me, so I had to delete all the copies of my account pic in the 'UserAccountPictures' folder, so that my login background image doesn't show my account pic.
    This also removes the account pic from the top of my Start menu, my User Account Profile, and online at all Microsoft sites.

    There MUST be a way to enable an account picture everywhere EXCEPT on the login screen ...? I'm not adverse to editing the registry, or changing system files, if need be. I've been a computer enthusiast since the mid '80s, and I want my OS to do what I want it to do, not what the 'mighty' Microsoft deems to be the options I should be allowed to tinker with.

    Any ideas?

    This no longer works in the later Insider Preview builds. If you have found a way I would like to know how you did it. I am currently using build 14388. I hate any picture on my login screen. MS has moved it elsewhere and has now made the account picture transparent.
