Change Your Account Picture In Windows 10

StartMenuScreenshot

Windows 10, like many other modern operating systems, lets you set an individual image for your user account. If you use a Microsoft account, the image carries over to every Windows 10 computer you sign into with that user account. Typically, you set up an account image when you create the account, but you can always change it later.

To change your account image in Windows 10, first open the Settings app. There are three ways to launch the Settings app. The first is to open the Start Menu by either clicking the Start button on the left-hand side of the Taskbar or by tapping the WINDOWS key on your keyboard. Once the Start Menu appears, type the word “Settings.” The Settings app will be the top hit, and you can launch it by clicking on its icon.

The second way to launch the Settings app is through the Action Center, Windows 10’s notification area. You can open the Action Center by clicking on the Action Center icon in the Notification area in the right-hand side of the Taskbar, by swiping from the right edge of the screen on a Windows 10 tablet, or hitting the WINDOWS+A keys simultaneously. Once the Action Center opens on the right-hand side of the screen, you can launch the Settings app by clicking on the All Settings icon.

Finally, you can open the Settings app at any time by hitting the WINDOWS+I keys simultaneously on your keyboard.
