    Our lock screen sign-in page keeps getting duplicate account pictures

    We have multiple accounts on our home PC. My dad is the administrator, and my mom, and I are just a local account.

    (Yes, when I installed a fresh Windows 10 OS, I ensured that the PC had no internet connection and only allowed for PC to log-in via offline account and not sign-in to Microsoft Account which would require Wi-Fi or ethernet connection).

    For some odd reasons, on my local account (Doug), whenever I asked my dad (Fred) (aka the admin/host user) to sign into his Microsoft Account so that I can have access to our activated Microsoft apps account such as Word, Excel, etc. My local account picture gets duplicated onto his login account picture.

    Now he likes to check his email a lot on Outlook Ė free personal email and calendar from Microsoft with the web version and not the desktop app. My sign-in account picture is now on his account picture whenever he sends or reply with a new email.

    The problem: We keep getting a duplicated login account picture from time to time. Sometimes his login picture gets duplicated onto my account or my mom's and vice versa.

    Solution that we want? We just want to be able to upload our own "local" login picture and not via outlook email account picture. I do not want to have to ask my dad to sign-in onto his activated Microsoft account and then all of a sudden, my picture gets duplicated onto his lock screen log-in account and then goes about to compose a new email and my lock screen log-in account shows up on his email account account. How do I prevent from this happening?

    When he sends an email to another person, I fear that they will see my sign-in picture. I do not want that. We just want a local log-in account picture. Nothing more, nothing less. We just do not want to have any pictures on our outlook email account picture.

    See picture below what the problem is.

    The login page shows the accounts that can be selected to log in. You select the account you want to log in to then do so. That's all normal.

    Am I missing your point because I can't see why the existence of a normal login screen makes you think something is being emailed to other people.


    Welcome to TenForums.

    It's really worth making time to browse through the Tutorial index - there's a shortcut to it at the top of every page.
    - At the foot of the Tutorial index is a shortcut to download it as a spreadsheet.
    - I download a new copy each month so I can benefit from Excel's filtering capabilities when I search for topics of interest.
    - Tutorials are also listed by category at Tutorials - there's also a shortcut to that at the top of every page.
    - Both tutorial pages are searchable.
    - You can also search for TenForumsTutorials in many general search engines, such as Google, by adding site:tenforums.com/tutorials after your search term. For example,
    taskbar toolbars site:tenforums.com/tutorials

    - And note that you can also search TenForums threads [rather than just searching tutorials] in many general search engines, such as Google, by adding site:tenforums.com after your search term. For example,
    Search for drivers by HardwareID site:tenforums.com
    [This is what the search box in the top-right corner of TenForums webpages does automatically]
