    Admin account page has unwanted photo?


    I put a photo of myself in the admin account page of the user accounts. I want to remove it, but I cannot?
    I tried logging into my MS account but still no luck.
    The picture is "not" in the program data\Microsoft\default account picts?

    So where is it?
    I really want it gone.

    I hate so much when microsoft does stuff like this. I should be able to right click and delete it or at least select it and delete it.

    any ideas?
    Thanks
    Frank

    If you are in "Your Account", you can browse for a new picture. Did you try that.

    All that does is "add" another picture, it does not replace it.

    That is for both posts above

    That's my problem.

    It only saves 3 pics so choose 3(have to be different ones) that you like till the unwanted one is gone.
