    Hi gearbox162. Welcome to the TenForums @gearbox162

    I'm not following exactly which picture you want to change. If it is the picture associated with the Account that is being used to login into PC, with the user logged in, click on Start, Settings, Accounts, Your Info.

    You can also change a Microsoft Account picture by logging in at and selecting "Your info".

    If I've misunderstood the picture you want to change please advise.
