    How do I change or remove picture on start up screen?


    When I open my PC, a wallpaper comes up and then I have to hit ENTER to bring up the password field. When I do that, a little round picture comes up and overlays on the wallpaper. How do I remove or change it?

    Thank you.

    I'm an end-user. More detail please? Settings for what? The only picture options I can find in Personalization is the one that is the wallpaper after putting in my password, and the PC boots up.

    Thank you. I figured out how to change the picture in the circle for my "account". However, I would never, ever sign in to MS for anything, so I would like to know how to remove the picture, if possible.
