    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.

    %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\AccountPictures

    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.
