    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft community forum.

    Please note that you will not be able to change the profile picture for all the user accounts if they are Microsoft accounts. If the user accounts are Microsoft account, the profile picture should be changed by signing in to:
    https://account.microsoft.com/ and if the user account is a local account, then you can change the Account picture (provided you are
    signed into that account)by following the steps provided below:

    1. Open Windows Settings.
    2. Then click on Accounts.
    3. Then click on image/blank icon to change it.

    Regards,
