    photo in a secondary user account


    Good day,
    dd
    I have a local user account where I've added a personal photo. Created an additional account but don't know how to place a personal picture on it. There seems to be no choices to change the existing generic photo in either Control Panel or PC Settings.
    This can't be a new question so my apologies if it has been answered elsewhere.

    Thx very much.....

    Thanks for such a rapid response. The tutorial shows how to place a personal photo into a user account. And I had no problems doing that. My question is in regards to an additional or secondary account that I have created. That's where I want to replace the generic little person icon with a personal photo and I see no way of doing it. A name change is allowed but I do not see "change picture".

    Thx again.....

    Just to make sure we're both on the same page, please go ahead and post a screenshot showing what and where you want to change.

    Hello Brink,

    I have two user accounts. One with admin. privileges and one standard. On the former I changed the photo on the intro. screen but could not change the default icon picture on the standard account. Since writing to you I realized that I can only change the photo on a user account if I am actually logged in into that account. I was attempting to change photos on the standard account while logged into the admin. account. So I solved my own problem but I thank you for trying to help.

    Ah, ok. I'm glad it turned out to be a simple solution.
