My user account picture in windows 11

In summary, the conversation is about trying to locate the account profile image in a Windows 11 system. The first person mentions looking under "Accounts" on the left side, but the second person suggests trying "Accounts-> Your Info->Take a photo" and setting the image as the account's profile picture. The first person then asks for the location of the image, and the second person suggests copying the image link from the Account information. However, it is mentioned that the image may be stored in the Microsoft cloud instead of locally.

TL;DR Summary
Where is my user account picture stored in windows 11? The one I took with my built-in camera when I set up my *local* user account information in Settings.
I'd like to get the location of this image in my system

No, that can't get what I want to.
Try this in your "Accounts-> Your Info->Take a photo", which opens your laptop's built-in camera, take one picture of you, then set it as your Account image. I want to know where that image is stored.

No one can actually tell exactly where the image set for their local account is located. At least in this forum.
When you see your picture in your Account information like in post #3, right-click and "Copy image link". Then paste that info into a text file to see where it points. Worked for me. (mine appears to be in the Microsoft cloud and not kept locally)
