I'm one of the folks who loved/s WL Photo Gallery and have used it to catalog thousands of family photos along with facial recognition of all of the folks in them.  I've noticed that for some time now, even though I am logged in, it no longer shows my MS account profile picture and full name in the upper right hand corner.  It only shows the user icon and my email address.  When I identify myself in a photo I've always used the "That's Me" feature and that still works but when adding the name it only uses the first part of my email address.  I've tried re-downloading Windows Essentials and re-installing Photo Gallery as well as updating my MS account profile but nothing has had any discernible effect that I can tell.

I don't know when this started so I can't correllate it to anything else like going from Win 7 to Win 10 or a particular release of Win 10 -- I just don't know.

Is this something that I'm going to have to live with or is there something I need to do to re-enable the display of my profile picture and name inside Photo Gallery?

Thanks in advance for whatever help you can offer.


Redmond, WA
