The Profile and Profile Picture are now found in the user menu which is found to the left of the main menu icon. Here is a brief description of what the different parts of Profile and how to import, delete and make an image file a default Profile Picture:


There are four sub-tabs under the Profile:

  1. About Me: This is where your name is automatically populated in the first and last name fields. You can enter a display name if you choose on this tab. There is a place to write an introduction.
