    How do I add a photo avatar to my profile


    I have thought myself computer literate for some years now (I started using computers in 1990) but I cannot see how I add a photo / avatar to my profile. I am sure it must be easy (there are a lot of users with avatars) and that I am missing something stupid but i can't find out how to do it myself. I want to use pictures residing on my computer. I suspect the process is not intuitive. Can anyone explain how please in a step-by-step manner? Thank you.

    :)

    Lost default photo viewer after profile rebuild

    Thanks Brink. I've tried those steps before i started searching Google. After the profile rebuild i don't have the Photo app listed to choose to make it default in either the system settings for default apps or the Open With option.

    I can't even find it doing a search. Seems to have been removed somehow with the profile rebuild, which doesn't make sense.

    Might be helpful to list what i've done How do I add a photo avatar to my profile :) I've done the open with check, the choose default program in the system menu, tried that in device manager default programs also. I've checked the programs and features Turn windows features on/off and it's not listed there (never thought it was but that was a suggestion), searched the MS Store, it's not listed there either.

    I don't like playing in the registry unless i have defined steps and haven't found anything for this yet, just the Win7 version like in my OP.
