    Remove User Account Picture


    Edit: I would like to give credit to Gary Blok the person that helped me find this solution. https://garytown.com/ It took me a while to find his name and website again.

    The method that I use does not remove the user account picture. Instead I use a transparent image and force Windows 10 to use that image. The end results is the appearance of no user account picture. This method works if you have not set an user account picture in Windows 10. I am not sure what will happen if you have all ready set an user account picture or if you automatically sync settings.

    *Arrow Change Default Account Picture in Windows 10 Windows 10 Tutorials

    Go to %ProgramData%\Microsoft\User Account Pictures\ find and rename User-192.png to User-192.old.
    Download and copy from my Google Drive the User-192.png file (transparent although it will appear as a black square) to %ProgramData%\Microsoft\User Account Pictures\.

    The folder should look similar to this when you are done.

    Now you must force Windows 10 to use this image. Open Registry editor and navigate to:

    *Arrow Apply Default Account Picture to All Users in Windows 10 Windows 10 Tutorials

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
    In the right pane right click and choose Add DWORD (32 Bit) Value (even if you have a 64 Bit system)
    Name it UseDefaultTile. Double click this new DWORD and set its value to 1.
    Here is how the Registry should look when you are done.

    Now Log off/Sign out. You should not see the transparent user account picture now.

    If you update Windows 10 to a later version (i.e. Windows Insider Preview) or if you run sfc /scannow you will have to go back and replace the User-192.png with the transparent User-192.png. So far the registry key has been unaffected.

    Remove account


    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.
    To delete an account, follow these steps:
    1. Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    2. Type the following command and press Enter. Replace test with the name of your sister's account. Code:
      Code:
      net user test /del
