    The blue note box at the top of the tutorial can help show you were the local cache is for the recent and current account pictures.
    I saw that. However, the following isn't true for either of my computers. In both cases, this location is empty (working and not working account pic): Your current user account picture is stored in the hidden folder below. C:\Users\Public\Public Account Pictures\S-1-5-21.......(GUID for user account)

    How about in the recent folder below?

    %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\AccountPictures

    This won't let you change it though. It's only where you can get a copy of the image if wanted.

    Yes, that folder contains my chosen pic. And it shows as a recent choice in the pick picture screen.

    Hello there !

    Is there a way to change avatar with command lines ? I created an avatar, I copied it in %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\AccountPictures\ but when I launch it with cmd, it doen't work...
    For instance, I type %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\AccountPictures\c9a68c769b75c308.accountpicture-ms in a Admin cmd, but I have an error windows.

    On the other hand, when I double-click on the file in Windows explorer, it works (with a confirmation windows). I want to get rid of this "manual operation".

    Thank you in advance !
