    Re-add Lock Screen Account select Image


    Windows 10 Version 2004 (also occurred on version 1909)

    How can I re-add the default lock screen user account select image to my profile (not the image above the username and password field). The picture below (not my PC) is an example of what I'm referring to. The "admintest" image has the default image but the "Administrator" account doesn't have an image at all.

    The "user.png" file I added fills the void in the lock screen user account select area but it changes the main profile picture in the center to a slightly different default image.

    Is it possible to copy the default profile picture from a newly created account and add it to my main profile?

    The default account picture is located in the folder below. You could select it to be the account's picture.

    %ProgramData%\Microsoft\User Account Pictures

    When visiting %ProgramData%\Microsoft\User Account Pictures, I see the second user's .dat file and Media.dat and guest.bmp, guest.png, user.bmp, user.png, user-32.png, user-40.png, user-48.png, and user-192.png.

    Which one should I select?

    I would select the user.png file. It's the largest size.
