    Personal picture not showing on logon screen during startup


    Not that this is an earth shattering*problem (grin) but I was wondering if anyone has had a problem with their local account picture not showing up on their Welsome screen in Windows 10, 1607?

    I am the only person that uses my* desktop PC and it's located in a secure environment so I chose to continue using my local account on my system vs my LIVE account.* In addition, my environment is secure enough that I also chose to have the system automatically log on so I don't have to enter my password each time I start my system.

    Prior to the 1607 release my system would start up and jump immediately to my desktop just as it did in Windows 7.* After 1607*the Welcome screen momentarily displays before it displays my desktop.* When this Welcome screen momentarily is displayed, instead of displaying the photograph of me above my*first name*it instead displays the person symbol that Microsoft provides as an account default in the event that the user does not provide a picture of their own.
    Now, I have a laptop that also is running Windows 10, 1607 that's setup the same way as my desktop PC and when I power up my laptop it does show my photograph of me above my first name on that Welcome screen.* I've double checked my desktop PC and the*my picture does properly show up if I go into account settings so I'm*clueless as to why the picture shows up on my laptop*during startup but not my desktop PC.* Again not an earth shattering problem but*I'd like to fix it if possible.**

    I had the same problem (there is another thread in this forum about it). Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3189866) released today fixed it for me.

    Thanks for the heads up. I was sitting at my computer when your posting notice arrived in my inbox and after I applied the update from Microsoft today (9/13/2016) the problem with the photo not appearing was resolved for me as well. Thanks again.
