Windows 10 - How to customize the user pictures

    Question

  • In windows 7 you can change the user account picture just replacing the user.bmp image in folder %programdata%\microsoft\use\account pictures. I did the same replacement in Windows 10 but it didn't work. It doesn't change the picture showed when the Start Bar is pressed.

    Is there any way in Windows 10 to do this?

    I am working in a Domain environment.

    Best Regards.

  • Hello Ruben,

    Try putting them in the %ProgramData%\Microsoft\User Account Pictures folder. There are multiple sizes of PNG files and 1 BMP file.

  • Hello Ed:

    Then I should replace the .bmp file and each of the multiple PNG files?

    I will try it and let you know the result.

    Thanks.

  • Thanks Ed 02. That did the trick.

    I had to replace every one of the files .png and .bmp in the path with the logo.

    Best Regards.
