    How to remove an account photo


    I have a Photo on my welcome screen and would like to remove it. If I try " %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\AccountPictures "Then there is no picture to delete in the folder. I tried in
    %ProgramData%\Microsoft\User Account Pictures Also nothing to delete there. Where else can I find that photo hidden?

    Hello Viljoenhj1, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    The first location is only for clearing your account picture history.

    Account Picture History - Delete in Windows 10

    If you didn't want an account picture at all, then you could change your account picture to be a blank image.

    Thanks for replying to my question. I cannot remove it with these steps.The folder is empty.
    Maybe a Blank image could work. HO do one get a blank?

    Navigate to C:/Users/your name/Public/PublicAccountPictures and delete the seemingly empty folder with the long name of letters and numbers.

    You can create a blank solid color image in Paint (mspaint.exe) to use.
