    Win 7 Account Picture - Where is it?


    Just upgraded to Win 10. How can I get the account icon that I had in Win 7?

    Windows 7

    Was this one of the system supplied images?
    If so I suspect it was not from an individual file but contained in one of the system files. Most system images are contained in resources within such files. I have no idea which file. Special software would be needed to access it.

    The picture was one of many icons shown when one added a new user (Win 7 and earlier). You had the ability to select one of those or also to browse through other files that contained icon images within them. Win 10 only seems to let you take a webcam picture or use a picture in one of your folders.

    You can use what ever image you wish. Search Google images for anything; 500x500px is best, save it to your Pictures folder and browse to there for it.

    Edit:
    You can download W7 User Icons from numerous places on the web, (carefully!)

    Click image for larger version.
