Hey Yagos7,

 

 

 

Customizing your lock screen

The lock screen is the screen you see when you lock your PC (or when it locks automatically after you haven't been using it for a while). You can add your favorite photos of your kids, pets, and vacations, or even create a rotating slide show.

If you want some free photos to use, download some desktop backgrounds from the Personalization Gallery

 
To add photos to your lock screen
  1. Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, then tap Change PC settings.
    (If you're using a mouse, point to the bottom-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, click Settings, then click Change PC settings.)

  2. Tap or click PC and devices, and then tap or click Lock screen.

  3. If you want to use just one photo on your lock screen, tap or click Browse, and then choose the picture you want (you can choose photos on your PC or OneDrive).

  4. If you want to see a slide show on your lock screen, tap or click Play a slide show on the lock screen to turn it on.

  5. Tap or click Add a folder and browse to a folder on your PC or OneDrive.

  6. Tap or click the folder to select it, tap or click Choose this folder, and then tap or click OK. You can pick up to ten folders.

It's very hard to imagine all the crazy things that things really are like. 

Electrons act like waves.. no they don't exactly, they act like particles.. no they don't exactly.

There's the Lock Screen and your Account Picture on the Logon Screen - which do you mean?  For the former follow the instructions posted by Darktune, and for the latter following this Bleeping Computer tutorial.

I meant the account picture on the logon screen, sorry if I wasn't clear enough

Hey again,

 

 

 

 

To change your account picture
  1. Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, then tap Change PC settings.
    (If you're using a mouse, point to the bottom-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, click Settings, then click Change PC settings.)

  2. Tap or click Accounts, and then tap or click Your account.

  3. Pick one of the following options:

    Find a favorite photo. If you want to find a favorite photo to use, tap or click Browse. You can navigate to photos on your PC, or to pictures you store on OneDrive. Tap or click a photo to select it, then tap or click Choose Image.

    Use an app to create or edit a photo. If you want to use an app to create, find, or edit a photo, tap or click the app you want to use, then follow the on–screen instructions or find a photo. All the apps installed on your PC that can edit or create a photo will be listed here. If you don’t see an app to use, find out how to get one in Getting apps for your PC.

    Take a picture or make a video clip. If you want to take a picture or record a video clip, tap or click Camera. Then take a photo, or switch to video mode to make a video clip.

You can also change it by going to the metro screen and at the top you will have the profile picture. Right click and one of the options is to 'Change account picture'
