PLEASE!!!!! That would be so great! That user pic thing is just so ugly... and a pointlessly stupid thing for MS to do... guess no one much uses the start menu anymore. So W8 was "born".
How does one get rid of the ugly chrome/silvery frame around the user pic and make it match the skin?
John... the ugly user pic I was referring to isn't the one in your skin.... It's the one I was getting - the Aero one, don't know why. Borked install, probably.
Deleted and reinstalled... and got the right one.
<- My current one. Yours ->
Allowing for capture size differences, my "A" distance (user pic to rt. panel) is larger than yours (still). Don't know what might be causing that... however, your user pic wasn't the one I was referring to as ugly... my Aero one was. That's why I tried changing it.
I could easily live w/o that pic altogether, if the Vista Start Menu could be used with W7 functionality.
