    How to change account photo inset on lockscreen


    So, I have an outdated photo that is inset in the upper right hand corner of my lock screen. I have changed my official account picture on my outlook and Microsoft accounts, but the change has not carried over to the inset on the lock screen. Oddly, the new photo, has carried over to my computer's account photo, so my user photo on the Metro screen is the updated photo. Everything is updating properly, EXCEPT the picture inset on the lock screen. Does anyone know where the file is that is feeding that one, little spot? I suppose I could just live with it, since nobody sees it but me. But I'm a little OCD, and it is bugging the heck out of me!

    Just for reference, so y'all know what I'm talking about, I've included a photo.

    Thanks in advance for your help. I'd sure like to let this one go...

Lockscreen Photo Location
I set a lockscreen picture as a picture that I took, but it is no longer located on my computer (A friend thought it would be funny to delete it completely). I was wondering if the photo that I uploaded would be in a folder somewhere, or maybe on my windows account. I am running windows 8 64-bit
