    Thank you @tracit99 - this still works on the latest version of 1809.

    I found this most useful because I use the same picture for my lock screen and desktop background and was tired of seeing the silly Microsoft Logo account "Ց" symbol in a circle on my lock screen.

    The transparent image and registry hack did the trick.

    Thanks again!

    You would not believe how hard it was to find a solution; then again, you are the one that did the footwork to find the guys website so you could share it here.

    I just wanted to let you know that it is working on the Home Editions of Windows also.

    This was working fine until I did a reset a few days ago but now I can't get it to work. Tried multiple times, but just keep getting the hero logo.

    I'm on version 1809 Pro, build 17763.379.

    Any ideas ?

    Hello @OldGuyFromCdn

    In my experience after doing a reset or upgrading to a new build (not cumulative update) or running sfc, you will need to go and replace User-192.png again. This file gets replaced with the default User-192.png. I hope this helps.

    I'll try again tonight when I get home. I'll let you know what happens.

    Thanks.

    Don't know what I was doing wrong yesterday but it worked first time today !

    Thank you tracit99, your help was greatly appreciated.

    And kudos to everyone here. Although I haven't asked for help directly in a very long time I've been using the sight since Windows 7 days (great advice and tutorials) and have recommended it to many people over the years.

    I'm kind of working on the same thing however on VDI and trying to setup a default image to be used as Account picture for all users. WE want to use company logo for that however what I'm seeing is that I have replaced all images in the C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures with the respective variety of our logos. I have followed the sizing and replaced all of them including the user-32, user-40, user-48, user-192

    What I'm seeing is that when I do that and have user logon I see the logo at the logon screen, however once user is logged in and locks the computer they see the default microsoft person icon .

    Can you please advise?
