By default, each user account in Windows XP has a standard picture (such as a chess set, a dog, or an astronaut) associated with it. If you want to make the picture more personal, you can add your own image for each account. Changing pictures is fun, and it makes it easier for young children to use your computer.

To change the picture on the Welcome screen

  1. Log on to your computer as an Administrator.
  2. Click Start > Control Panel.
  3. Under Pick a category, click User Accounts.
  4. Under or pick an account to change, click the account you want to choose a picture for.
  5. Under What do you want to change..., click Change the picture.
  6. Click Browse for more pictures.
  7. Click the picture you want to display for that account, and then click Open.

Windows XP displays the picture on the Welcome screen for the account you selected. To choose pictures for other accounts, return to step 3.
