    Hello Tommygun, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    One could do so by changing the account picture back to the default image in the folder below.

    %ProgramData%\Microsoft\Default Account Pictures

    Afterwards, delete the old recent pictures from the folder below.

    It appears that one can't add or change a picture for another user account one has just created (not using a Microsoft account or an email address). That's new.

    Can someone tell me if you can resize account picture so it is smaller on initial screen.

    Thank you.

    I have a problem in that my user account picture is cropped. I saw in the Win 7 forums that the picture needs to be 128x128 pixels. I resized it and it still crops the exact same way. Funny thing is, it IS a circle, so shouldn't even need to be cropped.

    Hello Orerockon, :)

    If you haven't already, see if playing with the image in Paint by cropping it as needed to make it fit better in the circle may help.
