I've been stuck trying to find...

the user icon image folder on my computer. I'm wondering where to find the pictures where I can set my account picture to. sure I can change it and just print screen the pic to save the one I want, but I'd like to know where to find it. I run Windows 7 on a HP laptop. can anyone help me with this?

That icon is not a standard "Microsoft" icon, so if it's not in this folder....

It could be anywhere. So if you downloaded it, you'll need to remember where you put it, or where it is the system builder put it.

BTW have you checked you "Documents" folder? Or your "Picture" folder? It could be there.

The other thing you could do is a generic search for jpg or bmp in the "Start" then "Search programs and files" box.

Good luck.

It was a preprogramed image. Since I have an HP laptop, the HP image was the default image. I tried putting in the jpg, bmp, png, and gif in the search box but none of the pictures for the default gallery for the user image even showed up.

Said for the quote above yours, it shouldn't be a microsoft image since it was the default image for the HP laptop I have. and I had to try "user" in the search. I sort of found the picture but it was just from my contact info, no direct file. I may have to ask HP for help with this....

???? Why not just search for an icon on the net?

BTW how did you lose it?

Yes that is the default location for those pictures.... however his answer is that it's not there. Not surprising since It's not a "standard" Microsoft icon/picture.
