The first thing to try when Windows 10 starts playing up is to do a restart. Don't shutdown and turn the computer back on as that'll have no effect - you need to click the Power icon and choose Restart.

If that doesn't help then change your user picture to something different, sign out, sign back in then put your old photo back. It may just kick-start Windows into working again.

Sorry to hear that Tullie.

I can't think of anything else at the moment - apart from doing a Google search but I'm sure you can do that yourself.

I only get the picture if I log in using my Microsoft account - no picture if logged in using local account.

It could be a corupt link to the picture. You could try changing the picture if it works you can then change it back to the one you want.
