    It appears that it can only show a Microsoft Accout profile photo. You (and I) have local accounts, and we just get the default user logo.

    I have never found anywhere on the web a screenshot of that Settings banner with a photo for a Local Account - but there are plenty of examples of photos for Microsoft accounts, such as this one.......

    I have the generic picture too, I suppose it`s normal, doesn`t matter to me.

    In fact, my header completely disappeared from the Z170, it was gone. I was like Yay, but then it came back with the LCU. Still scratching my head on that one

    But like your picture, Grogu shows up in My Info

    Edit: Interestingly the custom user profile photo does not appear here once applied.

    It just another subtle way of MS trying to persuade users to use MS account instead.
