    Lost Account Picture On Lock Screen


    Greetings,

    I hope this finds you all well. I tried switching to internal graphics on my new machine. I removed the dedicated graphics card, as I am getting another, and I wanted to send the current one back before the new one arrives.

    I had nothing but grief after removing my card. The screen froze, went black, etc. I have a 9900k in an Asrock Z390 Phantom Gaming ITX/ac.

    That is not the purpose of this thread. I put the card back in and things are back to normal. I noticed now though, that my lock screen photo is gone. It seems rather silly, but it's a picture of my kids.

    Can anyone give me process to get the picture back. It's also my account picture.

    Thanks,
    Graham

    :)
     

  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.

    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.

  4. Lost Account Picture On Lock Screen

    Lock Screen background picture


    Has anybody had difficulty adding a picture / wallpaper to the lock screen.
    I have just set up windows 10 screen saver and I see you can change the lock screen back ground picture.
    I have tried adding either one of the windows wallpapers or one of my own pictures but I can't find any option to save the image. on closing the window & returning to the lock screen the picture does not appear to save and returns to the standard blue background with date and time.
    I can't find any option to save the image as a lock screen wallpaper.
    Does anybody have any suggestions.
    Regards,
    Mark.
