Can't set my User Picture. Windows 7

When I try to put one of my photos in my user account, clicking on "Browse for more pictures does not open the expected explorer window so I can't choose one of my own photos.

Any thoughts?

Once the Browse for more pictures pane opens, select the Organize tab -> Layout -> and tick the box for the navigation pane. You can then browse to any of your picture folders.

That is the problem rdave 13. The window does not open. The "Browse for more pictures" link does nothing.

I misunderstood when you said does not open the expected explorer window , thinking that it had opened a pane. My mistake.

Run the system file checker a couple of times then reboot and see if that helps. Link.

I did the scannow twice but it found no problem and there now change in the behaviour of the link. I still can't open the browser window.

What's next to try?

Try by accessing the Change Pic Screen the other way - both methods are ClickHere I mean if you are getting there by clicking on picture -Method 1, then try Method 2 (via control panel)

OK. Try this, type advanced in the search bar. Select view advanced system settings. Under the advanced tab select the settings tab under Performance. Make sure the box is ticked to show thumbnails instead of icons. Click apply.

Hm...
