    Windows 10 Professional

    Many Windows 10 users still prefer Windows Photo Viewer as opposed to the Photos App, for a number of reasons;
    one thing I discovered is the zoom in Photos App is a little clearer and not so pixelated:

    I have seen somewhere that if you leave the Insider Program you will eventually be forced to go back to the last RTM. Can't remember where I saw that, though, so I guess it has to be put down as rumor until someone says yeah, that's true and you can find it here.
    I remember seeing it too Wyn...

    Obviously a better use of antialiasing.
    Something I learned, when I was learning to calibrate HDTV's, blurry is better.
    Never, ever set sharpness too crisp.

    Doesn't that depend on picture resolution ? Higher the resolution, less pixelated it is when blown up.

    Upgraded ok. Disk Clean-up worked ok, 36 Gig left from 59 Gig. Edge ok but slow on my set-up. This time Sys Restore remained off. One problem I've found is that F8 legacy mode doesn't work for me on this laptop. Booting up and tapping F8 the Advanced Boot options screen flashes up but then goes on to boot normally.

    Not this Windows 10 User! I still prefer third party photo apps. I've used Paint Shop Pro for many years, although it's pretty slow; they're improving its speed, though. Lots of the guys doing the graphics stuff use Gimp, which I have installed but haven't had the time to check it out.

    I will agree, though, that those who don't need the power of a Gimp, Cyberlink's PhotoDirector and Paint Shop Pro will probably use whatever Microsoft supplies them. If I had to choose, I would use the Photo app that came with Windows 7.

    I knew someone would ask that, after I wrote the last part
    Mike what I was hinting at, was the Photos app, automatically blurs the pixels as it enlarges the picture, to compensate for the missing pixels in a small compressed pic.
    Edgies, as their called are cause by the compression algorithm used(jpeg, png, gif...etc.) which compensates for pixels removed to make smaller. Now when you magnify it, up to a certain point, you start seeing the individual pixels, so the viewing software needs to blur or antialaise it.
