Iím running win XP, Microsoft paint Vs 5.1.
When I open a photo it defaults to paint and opens oversize for the screen. I cannot find a way to reduce the size to just fill the screen.
The Zoom only allows you to enlarge. Any way to reduce the size? :whistling:

I haven't found a way to scale down a photo to the display window in Paint.

However, I have found another graphics program (freeware) that I much prefer using. It's called XnView and you can download it here.

Of course, in Windows XP, you also have Picture and Fax Viewer. If you want to use that program instead, right click the photo, choose Open With, Choose Program. When the list opens click on Microsoft Picture and Fax Viewer and be sure to check "Always Use the Selected Program". This isn't for editing, only viewing and printing. So it may not be what you need.
