You can change your user account picture by either choosing an existing picture or taking a new photo. Here's how.

Change your user account picture

  1. In the Settings app on your Windows device, select Accounts > Your info or use the following shortcut:

    Your info

  2. Under Adjust your photo, select Choose a file > Browse files to select an existing photo. Or, if your device has a camera, select Take a photo > Open camera and take a new photo

Note: Windows remembers the last three pictures you’ve used. Select the picture on the Your info page to switch to that one.

Delete a user account picture

Windows is designed to let you switch between your three most recent pictures on the Your info page. If you want to delete one of your account pictures:

  1. Open File Explorer from the taskbar.
    If you don’t have File Explorer pinned to the taskbar, select Start and type File Explorer

    • Go to C:\Users\ yourname \AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\AccountPictures

    • Replace yourname with your account name

  2. If you’re unable to find the AppData folder in File Explorer, it might be hidden. Select View > Show > Hidden items to show all items in a folder

  3. Delete the account picture you no longer want to use
