My Windows 10 user profile is linked with my Microsoft account. I would like to set my profile picture for the account independently from the rest of my Microsoft account. Right now, when I attempt to set a profile picture in Windows, it updates my Microsoft account to use the same picture. Is my only option to unlink the profile from the Microsoft account?


You can remove your picture from Outlook.com. I do that and have a picture for my computer Microsoft Account. Otherwise, if you want picture both places then they are the same.
