    Hello,
    Is it possible to use/get from Windows 7 User Account Pictures and put them and/or use them with Windows 8? In Windows 7 I go to Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > User Accounts > Change Your Picture.

    Can anyone assist me so that I can use the User Account Pictures in Windows 7 on Windows 8? What I really would like to do is put the Windows 7 User Account Pictures on a USB Flash drive and put them on my laptop, which has Windows 8. I would really appreciate any and all assistance with this minor problem.
    Thank You.
    David :confused:

    In Windows 7, go here and save the pictures: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures\Default Pictures
    In Windows 8, browse to the picture you want and select it as your user account picture in the User Account settings.
