    How to Change Your User Account Logon Picture in Windows 7

       Information
    This will show you how to choose and change your user account logon picture that will display on the Windows 7 Welcome screen and Start menu to any .bmp, .dip, .rle, .gif, .jpg, or .png image that you select.

    The image should only be up to 128x128 pixels in size for the best display results and to prevent it from being automatically cropped to fit the user picture display box. If it is bigger than this, just resize it. Otherwise, your image may be cut off or not centered properly.
       Note
    These are hidden locations.



    The user account picture is stored in the hidden folder below as (username).bmp.
    C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Local\Temp



    Here's How:
    1. Open the Start menu, and click on your user picture. (see screenshot below)

    A) Go to step 3.
    OR

    2. Open the Control Panel (icons view), and click on the User Accounts icon.
    A) Click on the Change your picture link. (see screenshot below)

    3. Select a picture from the default Windows 7 pictures, or click on the Browse for more pictures link and navigate to a image of your own to use instead. (see screenshot below)

    A) Click on the Change Picture button. (see screenshot above)
    That's it,

    Hello Bryce, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    Sorry, but you cannot do so unless you use some 3rd party program like Vista Start Menu to replace the Start Menu with.

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks for the warm welcome. But i was referring to picture on the login screen. Does the answer remain the same?

    Thanks,

    Yes, pretty much so. You could set the computer to log on automatically to never see the log on screen, or you could remove only the picture by setting the computer so you would have to log on with user name and password.

    Dear Brink,

    Can we change the position of user account's picture on Logon Screen? I mean that if I can move the picture to the new position, top-right for example.

    Thanks :)

    Hello Chung, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    Sorry, but not unless some unknown 3rd party program can do it.

    Thanks for the tutorial Brink.

    Do you know if there's a way (perhaps via group policy or a 3rd party tool) to allow a domain user to update their user account picture once and keep the latest available on whichever domain computer they log on to?

    You're Windy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    I do not have much experience with domains, but I believe that it is determined by the user account on the computer connecting to the domain instead. I do not know of a way.
