    How do I edit/view 'comments' tag for .PNG files ?


    I can edit and view the tags (? these are called tags right ?) like 'Comments', 'Title', 'Authors' etc for .JPG and .JPEG files but cannot do the same for .PNG files. How do I it ?
    If it is not possible, then is there any way to convert 100s of png files to some other format ?

    I need to open a PNG file and it doesn't work on Windows10. The pop-up says that I need to download an application from the Windows Store. I don't have a MS account and don't want one. Does anyone here know of a non-store application that works on Windows 10? Or, is there a way to get to the Windows Store without setting up a Microsoft account? Thanks in advance!

    I open .png files in Paint/MSPaint on the last 5 versions of Windows, just checked one on Win10 Home.

    Thanks for that info Berton. I followed your advice and was indeed able to open the .png file with Paint. But I couldn't get the photo'd document to print over more than one page. The print is so small when printed on one page, I can't read it.

    So, on a hunch, I chose "Open With Firefox" browser. Firefox not only opened the .png photo-document, but allowed me to blow up the size for printing. Thanks again for putting me on the right track, Berton.
