    Account picture error. Setting the account picture failed. Please try again.

    Just installed the new Windows 10 v1809 Build 17763.55 LTSC 2019 EnterpriseSN Version N

    have the default grey person avatar...

    every time I try to change my avatar to any custom image I get the following error.
    "Account picture error. Setting the account picture failed. Please try again."

    Things I tried already
    • sfc /scannow
    • DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    • chkdsk C: /f /r /x
    • Apply the default user logon picture to all users via gpedit.msc
    • %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\AccountPictures
    • ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures
    • ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\SystemData
    • Taking ownership of the directory\files as well as renaming directory to "*.old"
    • Creating a new user-account
    • Windows 10 In-Place Upgrade / Reset / Refresh


    Nothing above has seemed to work as its still not changing my windows login screen / user avatar...


    Out of ideas...

    :)

  2. Unable to change account picture, error: Account picture error, Setting the account picture failed

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    As you are unable to change the profile picture on Windows 10, please do let us know how exactly you are trying to change it.

    I suggest you to try the below and check if it helps to change the profile picture.

    Steps:


    • Log-in with administrator account.

    • Go to system root drive on which
      Windows is installed currently, that is usually C: drive.

    • Click on View
      in the title bar, then check the Hidden items. Now click the
      ProgramData folder.

    • Navigate to Microsoft\User Account Pictures.

    • In the User Accounts Pictures folder, you’ll see the default user account pictures. You’ll just need to replace these pictures with your desired picture for user account.

    • Manipulate your desired image for user account picture in the same format and same size and
      replace the default ones.

    • Now reboot the system and you’ll be able to get your desired image as user account picture.

    Hope it helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of this issue and required information, we will be happy to assist you further.
