    Hello---

    I have what I hope is a simple question---the logon image on XP is a set of chess pieces and I would like to change it to a photo I have in my pictures. I have gone to appearances and screen saver but I am stumped as to how it can be done. I am sure there is a simple answer but I must be missing it simply by not being able to see what to click on. Thank you, any help would be greatly appreciated. [email protected]

    Hi, welcome to TSG.

    Go to Control Panel > User Accounts, pick the account and click "Change my picture".

    Control Panel/User Accounts. Click on the account on which you want to change the picture, then click "Change my picture". You can browse from there for the picture.
