Change Vista Start Menu Account Picture

Listen to this Post. Powered by

If you want to have a more customized desktop you can change your startmenu picture to something different, either one of the
preinstalled ones or one of your own. This change also will be reflected on the welcome screen after bootup for the account picture.

Very simple to do this just follow along:

  1. Go to Control Panel, then choose the User Account applet.
  2. Click on Change your picture link

  3. You will see the preinstalled pictures and the ability to browse for your own
  4. Choose the picture you want, hit Ok a few times and your done!

    I did all of the above (I used my own picture), but I still see the default picture on the start menu!
