In Windows 7, the logon screen usually contains a picture that you choose when setting up the computer and a default user name. Since I purchased my computer from Best Buy, the picture was already set and the user name was simply User.
Not very unique! The first thing I did when I got my computer was to change the user name and change my user picture. That is what I’ll explain in this article.
Change User Name in Windows 7First, click on Start and then Control Panel. Then click on User Accounts and Family Safety.

On the next screen, click on the User Accounts heading at the very top.

Finally, click on Change your account name to actually change the user name. If you want to change the user name for a different account, click on Manage another account.5a8fcb6.png
Now type in the new user name that you desire and click the Change button.

That’s it! Once you click Change, you’ll be back to the previous screen with a preview of the new login screen.

Change User Picture in Windows 7To change the user account picture, simply click on the Change your account picture link in the second step above.

You can either choose from the default pictures in Windows 7 or you can click the Browse for more pictures link. Once you have chosen the desired picture, click on the Change Picture button.
Change/Create User Password in Windows 7If you want to create a password for your user account or change the current password, click on the Change Windows password link.

If you don’t already have a password setup for your user account, you can click on the Create a Windows 7 password for your account link, otherwise you can click Change your password.
