    SkyDrive


    Hello
    I have a photo in SkyDrive that appears when I click on shared, to the left.
    It is the same as the photo I see when I sign in to my pc.
    Is it in SkyDrive because it is shared with my sign in?

    I wish not to have anything in SkyDrive but when I click on the file and click to remove it, nothing happens.

    It seems to say it is a file I shared but that no one can share.

    I wonder if I have to remove all my family photos in my pc for this file to be removed from SkyDrive.

    Obviously my knowledge of this is quite limited although I have read many tutorials and other pieces of information.

    Do you know how to remove this file?
    Thank you
    Peter

    Hello Peter,

    If you mean the image just to the right of the "Shared by me" text like below, then that's only your Microsoft account user picture and not a shared file.

    I told my wife that this is hard to describe, insignificant but that if anyone could understand and reply with a solid answer it would be you. I read all of your tutorials and am none the worse of for it, for sure
    Thank you once again. I thought my family was stuck on the w.w.w.

    Your most welcome Peter.

    If you like, you could change or remove it, but it would also do so for your user account picture of any PC you sign in to with the same Microsoft account.

    I understand and will keep it as is knowing what purpose it serves.
