Windows – How to change account picture of DIFFERENT user in Windows 10

user-accountswindowswindows 10

I have created new user and set a password for him.

Can I also set account picture for him?

I searched following places:

  1. New windows style: PC Settings -> Accounts

  2. Medium age windows style: Control Panel -> User Accounts -> Manage another account

  3. Old age Windows NT style: Administrative tools -> Computer management -> Local Users and Groups.

May be I am late and the progress went ahead? May be they already created fourth semi-functional applet for user management?


Note that the question is about how to set picture of a DIFFERENT user. So, the method including logging in as new user can not be regarded as an answer, because once I logged as some user, I am not different of him anymore.

Also normal security setup doesn't allow anyone to log in as any one else, even an administrator.
