The default user template on my Windows 10 laptop has access to the local account picture folder. How can this be prevented?

I am assuming that, if the settings are not changed, service staff will be able to view private photos without a password when the machine is goes in for a repair.

Don t know how the folder came to be shared in the first place.

    If there is something private, keep it in another folder that is protected, not the standard picture folder.

    If the pictures are really private, keep them on a portable drive, separate from the comupter.

    Your assumption that service staff can view anything on a computer is reasonable. Even things that are password-protected or encrypted in some cases.

    No one can log into the Default User profile as it is what windows loads before login. Not sure how this affects things, but it's a non-issue really.

    Glad you got it sorted....

    "Default user template" means nothing. You will have to explain more!
