    Shrink pics


    Arghhhhhhhhhhhhh, just found out that there is no right click on a pic and then choose to shrink it in Win 10 like there was in Win 7.

    I may not be remembering correctly, but that wasn't a default option in Windows 7, either. It sounds more like you had some graphics software installed, or a plug-in that handled the shrinking. I could be wrong, and I have to find a Windows 7 computer to check.

    DeaconFrost is correct. There is no native context menu option in Windows 7 to shrink a picture but this could be added by third party software. There is an "Edit" option that opens the picture in Windows Paint program and it has limited resizing capabilities.

    I figured it out. It had been a part of Windows Power Toys. Found it for Win 8, and tried it. It works. Right click on a pic or pics and you will have a resize option. Choose the size and it will save a copy. I found it at Image Resizer for Windows - Home

    I use IrfanView for this, not quite as simple but it works.
