Small problem about finding administrative account pic

by ajmrkva / May 3, 2007 4:33 AM PDT

Remember when you first set up your new mac, and it takes your picture for the administrative user account. Well, I accidently replaced that picture with a less flattering one. I can't find the original pic that my mac took but would like to find it. I have backed up my system but this is something so minor to revert to a previous state.

Any help would be appreciated.

I thought this was going to be an easy answer

so I went to the accounts pane and took a picture.
For the life of me, I cannot find it anywhere. It must exist but, as yet, I have not had any luck.

Perhaps others can help us both on this one

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
