Description:  

This policy setting allows an administrator to standardize the logon pictures for all users on a system to the
default user picture. One application for this policy setting is to standardize the logon pictures to a company
logo.

Note: The default user picture is stored at %PROGRAMDATA%\Microsoft\User Account Pictures\user.bmp. The
default guest picture is stored at %PROGRAMDATA%\Microsoft\User Account Pictures\guest.bmp. If the
default pictures do not exist, an empty frame is displayed.

If you enable this policy setting, the default user logon picture will display for all users on the system with
no customization allowed.

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, users will be able to customize their logon pictures.

Supported on: At least Windows Vista.
Apply the default user logon picture to
all users
