    Hey guys

    I switched to a local account. When I reboot the PC I can't see a picture. It's just a grey icon. How do I get a picture to show there. The only time I see a picture now is if I'm using my Microsoft Account. Thanks ☺

    :)

  3. For security reasons, how do I add a local account to my new computer, (make it my administrator) and then change my Microsoft account to a "standard" account for everyday use?

    For security reasons setting up a new computer on the Windows 10 platform, I want to add a local account (which I would make my
    administrator account and use for settings changes only) and then change my existing Microsoft account to a
    "Standard" account to use for everyday work and play.

    My understanding is that as in the past, it is still safer security wise to do day-to-day work on a "standard account" as opposed to an "Administrator" account. Does this make sense?

    Haha. So again, if I use my Microsoft Account and have to enter a password at boot (I get the the picture on the splash screen) but in a local account it is grey.

    I'm now wondering if it's possible to get a picture?
