Edited by Lukward Thomason, Crystal, Eng
Hi, you're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to change the account picture on a Windows 7 computer.
As you can see, my account picture is a flower, but I am going to change it.
There are many ways to change this picture.
Click on the Start menu in the bottom left corner.
Click the account picture.
A new window will open.
In this window, locate "Change your picture".
From this section, you can choose from the preset pictures.
For example, I will choose the stairs.
Click "Change Picture" when you have selected the image you would like.
After you've changed it, if you click on the Start menu again, you will see that the picture has changed.
Another way to do this is to right-click on the Desktop and click "Personalize".
In this window, select "Change your account picture" on the left side of the window.
You will be brought back to the same section as before, but this time, we're going to change it a different way.
If you don't like any of the pictures in the list and you want to set your own image, click "Browse for more pictures".
From this window, locate a picture that you would like to set.
In this case, I will set the VisiHow picture. Be sure to use a square photo, not a rectangular photo.
Click the photo you would like to set and click "Open".
The picture has been set.
Let's check it again by clicking on the Start menu.
As you can see, the image is set there as well.
This concludes the tutorial on how to change the account picture on a Windows 7 computer.
