    Yes I do know the difference as with windows photo viewer you cant resize
    Also If you go to Photo Gallery
    Then Edit and Properties there you can always resize your photo as well
    He might not have it but he might decide to install it.
    Also we are here to try and help him
    As he I believe asked how to reduce the size not send it as it is
    Photo Gallery comes with Windows Essentials. It does not come with Windows 10.
    You mentioned 2 applications, Photo Gallery and Windows Photo Viewer, none of which comes with Windows 10, and Photo Viewer does NOT even do resize.

    How do you know the OP has Windows Essentials and Windows Photo Viewer installed ?
    If you must assume, you should specify that you were assuming.

    You said " Also we are here to try and help him ". Then help the OP by using the app that comes with Windows 10.
    Assuming something that the OP may or may not have is Not helping.

    If you go to Photo Gallery you can resize the photo you want send there
    How I do it is
    Open with Windows Photo Viewer
    Then Click Open
    A list will appear
    Click on Photo Gallery
    Then Edit or Resize
    There you can do what you want with it
    Read your post.

    You started with Photo Gallery, then you asked the OP to " Open with Windows Photo Viewer", then you asked again to " Click on Photo Gallery". How confusing can that be ?
    Furthermore, if one has Photo Gallery installed, why the heck one needs to open Photo Viewer ?

    In Windows 10, how can I reduce the size of photos I want to attach to my emails so that the entire photo either fits or is smaller than the screen size?
    The easy way. Right click the photo, click Send to, mail recipient, select the size, then mail it to yourself, place the attachment(s) on your desktop then attach them to your email.

    I open with Windows Photo Viewer if I want only one album at a time open
    I only either use Photo Gallery or Paint net or Paint when and if I want to resize

    1. One can open any image with Photo Gallery just the same.
    2. Open Photo Viewer cannot resize. Open Photo Gallery can. And resize is what the OP is asking about.

    I use the built-in MSPaint [in Windows Accessories on All Apps] to resize photos. It seldom works to enlarge photos as they become pixelated. Or if I use the older photo viewer, not Photos, I might try a PrntScrn and paste into Paint to Select then Crop the image.

    There are many ways to resize photos I guess but I always use MS Paint because it is there and it is easy.

    I usually resize my uploaded screen prints to this forum to 50% (as they are too big otherwise).

    All you need to do is open the picture, click on resize, make up a percentage and then save it again.

    I must admit I forget to do it sometimes and some recipients are better than others at resizing what is received.
