    Sometimes it may take a bit to fully sync to all PCs. You could also manually change the account picture on the PCs to speed it up though.
    but from the pc you cannot move the picture as on the webpage...it decide by itself where to "put the circle"...

    You could edit the image in mspaint.exe to how you like to fit in the circle before using it as your account picture.

    Any luck changing your account picture online at Microsoft to sync with your PC if you're using a Microsoft account?

    Hi, All

    I did what that were informed on 1st page.
    But 1 pic not were removed. I had 2 pictures. After I did what were suggest on 1st page. Then I saw that 1 pic were removed. But not the 2nd one.

    So I uploaded a new pic. Then my previous pic were automatically removed. I want to ask that, Is the pic that were removed automatically after I uploaded new one is still available into my PC? If so then how can I remove this personal pic permanently from my desktop?

    2nd question is that how can I get back Original Windows pic that I had before I made some changes or uploaded previous and current pic?

    Sorry for my poor English!

    Hello Hawk7, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Your recent user account pictures on the side are stored in the hidden folder mentioned in the blue note box at the top of the tutorial. You can delete them in that folder to remove them.

    %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\AccountPictures

    The default user account picture images are in the hidden system folder mentioned in the blue note box at the top of the tutorial. You can browse to that location and select the default picture to use again.

    %ProgramData%\Microsoft\User Account Pictures

    The blue note box is on the first page of this tutorial thread.

    You can copy and paste the folder location below into the address bar of File Explorer, and press Enter to open the folder.

    %ProgramData%\Microsoft\User Account Pictures
