    Information You can sign in to your PC with a picture password. You choose the picture and the three gestures you use with it to create a password that's uniquely yours. When you have chose a picture, you "draw" with the mouse, touchpad, or pin/finger on a touchscreen to create a combination of circles, straight lines, and taps. The size, position, and direction of your gestures become part of your picture password.

    This tutorial will show you how to remove a picture password from your account in Windows 10.


    EXAMPLE: Picture password on Sign-in screen

    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

    Offline Windows Password & Registry Editor

    NT Password Reset will remove the password from your local administrator account (or any other account). Quite easy and straight forward to use.

    Remove Picture Password from your Account in Windows 10

    Quick Access not searching Pictures folder

    Summary, that last suggestion didn't work.

    • I moved the pictures to another folder temporarily.


    • Since there were no troubleshooting steps for this scenario, just for the heck of it, I ran through the restore steps. Copied some pictures into the Pictures folder, ran a Quick Access search and initial problem remains: Searching all of QA doesn't find any files in Pictures folder, running search on just the Pictures folder does. I want to run a global search and find matching files in any/all of the Documents, Music, Videos, and Pictures folders.
    That article dates from 2015 and I'm guessing is out of date. I hope it didn't create potential future problems in my registry.

    Bottom line: I'm still looking for a fix.
     
  5. Logon Screen Account Picture - Windows 10 Anniversary Upgrade

    Yes, I can view my account picture in Settings > Accounts.

    It was functioning properly prior to the Anniversary Upgrade.

    I was using the 'remove password login from Windows 10'.

    When I run netplwiz and tick "Users must enter a username and password to use this computer" box, and reboot (thus requiring a password), the account picture displays.

    After I manually log in, and run netplwiz and untick the "User must enter....." box, and enter my password and click the OK button; when I reboot/restart the computer the account picture does not display.

    As mentioned previously, it worked before the Anniversary Upgrade (with the no password login).

    The issue still persists.
