    What Happened To All The Account Pictures?


    In Windows 7 there used to be several pictures you could choose from for your account picture. After installing Windows 8 today I only had one (the bass clef). Anyone know what happened to all the pictures or if they are still available?

    Thanks!

    They are....sort-of

    Bring up the Charm Bar, and click 'Settings'.

    Now click 'Change PC Settings'.

    At the top of the screen, select 'Account Picture'.

    Now click 'Browse', and you can select any pic on
    your hard drive as your account pic.

    Hope this helps.


    EDIT: - Something went pear-shaped, and the post
    was full of HTML.......

    The default account pictures Windows had before Windows 8 seem to be completely gone. I don't think they are still available.

    They're not, that's why I said 'Sort-of'.

    You use your OWN pics instead.

    Same end result.
