  1. Lock screen account picture


    Hey there. I updated my Windows 10 two days ago. Today, I logged into my Outlook account and updated my account picture. That was done but I don't know why the picture that I used months ago suddenly popped up into my lock screen account picture and in my PC too. I thought further update or restart would solve the problem, but all in vain. When I log in online my Outlook account, I can see my picture i.e the new one. But the lock screen and setting still show the same old picture. Please guide me into solving this problem.

    :)

  2. Lock Screen Image Too Big

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    • Is this issue occurs only when the pictures are set from OneDrive?

    I suggest you to set the picture for the lock screen using the default lock screen pictures and check whether the issue persist or not, follow the below steps to set the pictures.

    • Go to “settings” and click on “personalization”.
    • Under “lock screen” tab, select the option from the drop box as “picture”.
    • Then under “choose your picture” option, click on any picture and go to the lock screen, check whether the issue persists or not.

    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.

    Lock screen account picture

    Opening screen picture

    Hi Sharon,

    You can customize the settings of the lock screen and desktop screen background picture in the Pesonalization page of Settings. You can also change the profile picture that you're seeing on the log-in screen in the Accounts page of Settings. Just to clarify,
    are you referring to the desktop screen, the lock screen, or the profile picture of your user account?

    To change the background picture of the lock screen, follow the steps below:

    • Click the Windows logo (Start button).
    • Click the gear icon (Settings).
    • Select Personalization.
    • On the left pane, choose Lock screen.
    • Under Choose your picture, you can select from the default list of photos or you can click on
      Browse if you want to select the photo that you want.

    You can change the background picture of the desktop by following the same steps above but instead of choosing lock screen, select
    Background.

    You can replace the profile picture of your user account by doing these steps:

    • Click the Windows logo (Start button).
    • Click the gear icon (Settings).
    • Select Accounts.
    • On the left pane, choose Your info.
    • Under Create your picture, choose Browse for one to see choose the profile photo that you want.

    If you have additional questions, kindly reply to this thread.
