    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.

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

    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.
