How To Change Windows Vista Start Menu Picture

If you have created multiple user accounts, Windows Vista will start up at the Welcome Screen for you to click on a user name to log on to the system. Windows will display a basic picture not only next to the user names but also within the right column of the Start Menu. Windows Vista does allow you to change to a different picture that is included with Windows or replace it with a picture of your own choosing.


Changing Windows Vista Start Menu Picture

  1. Click the Start button located in the lower-left corner of the Windows Vista desktop.
  2. Then click on Control Panel.
  3. In the Control Panel, click on User Accounts and Family Safety.
  4. Then click on Change your account picture to choose a new one for your account.
  5. Click the picture you want to use from those displayed and then click on Change Picture.
  6. If you want to use a picture of your own, you can click on Browse for more pictures instead.
  7. Then browse to the picture on your computer that you want to use for your Start Menu picture.
  8. Once located, click that picture and then click on Open to set it as your Start Menu picture.

Note: Your picture can be of any size, but it must be in a .bmp, .gif, .jpg, or .png file format. Your newly selected picture will be used in all locations, including both the Start Menu and Log On screens.
