Change user profile pic in win8.

Recommended Posts

I know how to change userpic in win 7 and older, but in win 8 and win 8_1 standart method does not work

I mean this one:

$hPicPath = DLLStructCreate("wchar[128]")  
    DllStructSetData($hPicPath, 1, @UserProfileDir & "\usertile.jpg")

   $hUserName = DLLStructCreate("wchar[128]")  
      DllStructSetData($hUserName, 1, @LogonDomain&"\"&@UserName)

   $aRet = DllCall(@SystemDir & "\shell32.dll", "long", 262, "ptr", DllStructGetPtr($hUserName), "int", 0, "ptr", DllStructGetPtr($hPicPath))

I know there is some function like [Windows.System.UserProfile.UserInformation]::SetAccountPictureAsync($file) (powershell), but it doesnt work in AutoIt. Can somebody help me? Im very new here.

I used to do it like careca, change the file itself.

Based on that if it works in Win 8 all the same here is a quote from a Win 8 site.

The default user account picture images are in the hidden system folder below.

C:ProgramDataMicrosoftDefault Account Pictures

The current user account picture (tile image) is stored in the hidden folder below.


C:UsersPublicPublic Account PicturesS-1-5-21.......(GUID for user account)

The recent user account pictures used for your account are stored in the hidden folder below.


C:Users(user-name)AppDataRoamingMicrosoftWindowsAccountPictures

As far as i know, this will change userpic only after PC restart.

 

Maybe try to kill and restart the Explorer process?  Not sure if that would work but it does for a lot of things that normally require a logoff/restart.
