is there a way to find the photo that I'm currently using?

I really like the image I have, but I'm unable to find the original to reuse in another account!

can I find the image that is being actively used? so I can steal it and use it again for my new account?

odd request I know,
but I'll NEVER be able to re google where I found this image.

any ideas where the active user account image is stored?

I most likely had photoshop open,
copy/pasted, resized it and didnt save the orig nor the project file. :-/

Hello DevLano, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The image will be stored on your computer somewhere. If you know the file extension of it (BMP, GIF, JPG, or PNG), then you can do a search on your C: drive using *jpg (or whatever the file extension is) to find all them to go through to find it. It may take a bit, but you should be able to find it this way.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hello Phil,

Do you have a screenshot of this image or something to go to help us help you with it? Here's a screenshot of the default display picture images from Vista. Is it one of these?

Is there some reason that when I change my account picture it updates the Login Screen and start menu but it does not update the saved passwords box that opens through Internet Explorer?

I changed my picture but it still just shows the silly flower everytime IE does the saved passwords...
