How to turn MSN Messenger Display Pictures into User Pictures on XP For the pix you downloaded from MSN If you&ve ever wanted to turn the display pictures you download from MSN into an account picture (the one that appears in your Start Menu next to your username) for 1) In messenger Choose ==> Change Display Picture and then ==> Download more pictures. 2) Download the desired images. 3) Open 'Folder Options' in Explorer and make sure you can view Hidden Files and folders. 4) Navigate to X:\Documents and Settings\User_Name\Application Data\Microsoft\MSN Messenger, where X: is the drive XP is on and User_Name is your username. 5) In here you'll see folders with long numbers for names. The next bit is trial and error. If you go into each of the folders you should see that some of them have a folder called UserTile inside of them. In that directory it will have .dat files. The files which have TFR in their names are the images (to make your life easier there is a list at the bottom showing which file is which for a few of them). 6) Going through all the UserTile folders copy these .dat files to a new folder.
