    Log in, -sad question

    My son died recently. We both from time to time used a laptop with Win10. We both had administrator rights.
    When you start logging to his account his picture (avatar) appears. When a wrong password is used this avatar changes into the short movie showing my son negating this incorrect choice.
    Where can I find this movie?! I'd like to copy it since this is the only movie left from my son's adult years...

    Hi pwg. Welcome to the TenForums @pwg

    Sorry to hear these circumstances.

    First check the video library in file explorer. Doubt your son only had one copy. Likely had it in a folder appropriately named.

    If not there check down the path c:\user\his_profile\appdata\roaming\microsoft\windows\Account Pictures

    his_Profile is the named user your son was using.

    If you can't see folder appdata click the "View" tab in File explorer and then add a check mark to "Hidden Items" and "File Extensions"

    Should be able to see a movie extension easier than just a file name.
