Hi, does anyone know how to change what happens when you click on your user image on the start menu.
I have searched various forums and googled but haven't found anything.

Thanks for your time, Chris :)

Chris hi. Not quite sure what you mean. The location of the image files, or how to change it.

I think he means the icon at the top of the Start menu that represents the user. Clicking on it takes you to User Accounts, your user.

There is probably not a good way to change this without changing all User Hives in the Registry. Really not worth the effort.

You can easily change it in User Accounts. Just browse to the one you want (if you don't want an MS one).

Sorry for not specifying the problem properly lighthouse, but Xhi's reply was what I wanted, but shame that it isn't easy.

Thanks for your time, Chris
