Pyewackette Posted March 25, 2022 Report Share Posted March 25, 2022 I've been asked to write a short tutorial for how to do this under Win10. No really! Seriously I totally understand why this has become an issue under Win10 for people who managed it just fine previously under Win7 (I actually have computers that still run Win7, and even a micro laptop that still runs Vista). I immediately had issues with Paint 3d, the dumbest damn piece of crap software I've ever been forced to deal with. Well one of, anyway. Turns out - Paint is STILL on Win10, they just hid it. So - I'm assuming folks used to use Paint to resize their pics, I know I always have (do). On that assumption here is how to find Paint on your Win10 system. Yup. It's still there. The MicroSoft folks just hid it from us, maybe they were embarrassed! Click on the magnifying glass icon in the toolbar at the bottom - it is the second icon from the left (right next to the Windows Start icon). Type in Paint. Paint will appear in the list of found items. You can pin it to the start menu, or to the taskbar by right clicking and selecting one of those options. You can create a shortcut on the desktop by left clicking on the desktop, select New, select Shortcut, enter %windir%\system32\mspaint.exe , click next, name it Paint or whatever you want to, then it will place that shortcut on the desktop. Now just copy-paste the image you want into Paint (or open the file if you have a local copy), select all, and use the resize option just like we have been doing for 90 bazillion years. Save. Eh voila, your photo be SMALLER. Anybody need more info than that, I will happily provide. Pye Fellow hater of Paint3d rox54 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
