Change Your Windows 8 Local Account Picture
Edited by Doug Collins, Eng
Hi. You are watching VisiHow. Today we are going to show you how to change your account picture on a Windows 8 local user account. This is different than an account that is connected to a Microsoft or Microsoft Outlook, Hotmail, or Live Account which many people have as it is specific to an actual machine. Generally speaking, we recommend that you have an online account as opposed to a local account as it makes recovery of a lost password or a locked system significantly easier than if you simply have a local account. However, for the purpose of today's tutorial, we are just going to focus on a local account.
- 24And now as you could see, we have got a Picture password, Account picture, Lock screen, and a whole set of other options.And we will discuss how to change each of those in a future video. As usual, thanks for choosing VisiHow.Advertisement
