    No it does not. I have searched over the past few months and so far I have not found anyone who has reversed engineered this to give us a choice of having or not having the user account picture on the login screen. Perhaps it will happen soon.

    I don't know about anyone else, but I do not want any user account picture default or otherwise on the login screen. That was possible before 14371, but since then I am no longer able to remove the user account picture.

    I have looked at the files that are open when the login screen is present and I am unable to identify which file the user account picture is coming from. I am confident that there is someone who will find a way to remove the user account picture on the login screen in the anniversary edition. For now all we can do is wait.

    Me think, the User-Picture is part of your MS Account used for to register and/or Log on.

    The online user account, yes but the system has defaults. Then those defaults get moved to a hidden working location. You really cant remove the resource unless you reverse engineer a file. If that is done a update will kill it. lol

    I've 2 MS-Accounts, 1 with picture and the other without a picture! In Settings -->Accounts, in all computer with W10-Insider, there isn't any picture! That works fine for me and only those computer with the MS-Account and there saved Picture, is showing that picture!

    That said, I do believe the most easy way for the OP is, to create a new MS Account without User-Picture and use that if no User-Picture is wanted!

    I know it will not be as easy as it was before and I realize that it will have to be done after each new build, but I would just be glad to be rid of the user account picture on the login screen including the default picture which after all is a picture. It would just be nice to have the choice. Can you hear us Alphawaves?

    AFAIK, and as long as you use a MS-Account, you'll need to either remove or change the picture within your MS-Account at MS Website! Only if you use a Local Account, that picture is mainly saved on your local OS! As Windows 10 Insider User you mainly have to use a Microsoft Account!

    The may exception is the Enterprise Version which are activated via VL/LMS Service and not via MS Server! Just, the Account picture is handled via Settings -->Accounts and as you change or delete it there, it shows or don't. I'd test that today on a 15007 Enterprise and works well.

    For sure it's simply up to you how you like to get things working or not! Neither I nor anyone else could tell you what you have to really do (or not)!
