    Removing Round image on opening screen


    Please help me learn how to remove images for the "My Info" section of Microsoft Account. I have deleted the images from pictures and from cloud pictures but they are still present on the "My Info" section.

    Thank you

    If you change the picture in Settings-Accounts it will remove the pic.

    Are you signed on as Administrator?
    Are you showing 'Hidden Files, Folders and Drives'?

    Worked perfectly. Thank you. BTW, I really like the look and format of your screen. How was that done?
