My machine is updated from Win 7, so I'm not sure if new Win 10 machines have Windows Paint. It is listed under Windows Accessories. It has the capability to resize images. I always resize a copy to keep a file with the original resolution.

"I'm a bad girl, and I need to be punished," she said.
"OK," he said, and installed Windows 10 on her computer.

Yes Win 10 has Paint and it works the same.

Toon, I read somewhere that Microsoft developed Windows 10 to make Windows 8 more like Windows 7.... :-)

Gelukkig Nieuwjaar!

Go to your C: Drive and do a search for the Microsoft Office Picture Manager icon that is red with a darker border and has a ball, pencil and two triangles in it, if you have the Microsoft Office set.

You can right click on the icon and then pin it to your start menu or bottom task bar.

OS Market Share as of December 2015.

Apparently, the enthusiasm for Mac is not shared.

Windows 10 is really good.....at making me miss Windows 7.

Ken, I suspect the Windows market share is largely due to price. Most people are willing to put up with it because it costs less. I'm not smart enough to use a Windows machine comfortably. I prefer something friendlier. After making the mistake of buying a Windows laptop for trips and having it betray me repeatedly, I was happy to sell it for a hundred bucks and spend $300 for a used/refurbished Macbook Pro. So far it has given me none of the grief inflicted by the late, unlamented HP from Hell.

This was business news from 2013:


quote:

The {Mac) desktop operating system is dead as a major profit center, and Apple just delivered the obituary.




It's not really based on price. The OS cost is about the same. And for many, it is free. It's because Apple will not license the Mac OS to run on anything but a Mac. Then many will turn around and install Fusion or Parallels so they can run Windows based software on a Mac. Crazy, I tell ya. :-)

Try to buy Mac parts (hardware) at/from your favorite PC supplier. It ain't happening. Apple has a lock on their hardware/software interfaces for most items and requires OS hacks to get around. There is nothing "standard" in a Mac unless you buy it from Apple.

What if you had to buy all your replacement car parts from an auto dealership because to do anything else was illegal? That's how Apple works.

Early Packard Bell PCs tried a similar business plan by making unique hardware mounting devices. They're toast now. Mac's sole hold on what market they have is the heavy graphics users but that's dwindling too. And then there's the uninformed users that simply have an insipid social circle. :-)

I don't give a rat's patoot about their social circle, and I don't really care about their market share as long as they make enough dough to keep providing me with equipment that doesn't drive me nuts.

Linda says she is ambidextrous, she can go both ways-Windows or Mac. We are still using Windows 7, our son (the computer programmer) says we "don't need to upgrade again, yet".
Linda is quite good with computer programs, herself. I would would be lost here without her help.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

For those of you with windows 8 or 10 who long for the simpler interface of windows 7:

http://www.classicshell.net/

I have put this on countless customer's machines and they all love it. It doesn't really change windows 8 or 10, it just changes how you interact with it and makes it look and act like windows 7. Easily removable if you don't like it, but you won't want to.

Foe those of you who don't follow this sort of thing, Windows 8 almost broke the back of Microsoft because users hated the interface so much. They even skipped using the Windows 9 name because they wanted to distance themselves from Windows 8 as far as possible. Both Windows 8 & 10 are excellent operating systems ... its just the interface that stinks.

I agree Jeff, I was a hardcore PC user, went to an IMAC, never looked back.

I have pretty much stayed with Microsoft operating systems from the beginning (DOS and then Windows). I tend to avoid MS software (don't use IE as my browser, prefer WordPerfect to Word, etc.) but use the OS. MAC users remind me of our neighbor in University City MO in the late 1940s. Everyone in the neighborhood drove a Ford, Chevy or Plymouth except Justin Weil. He drove a Studebaker. He would bend everyone's ear endlessly about how much better Studebakers were than everyone else's cars. For all I know now, he may have been right. On the other hand, where is your closest Studebaker dealer today? :-)

I'm not computer wiz but my old laptop with windows 7 went junk so I bought a new one with 10 on it and when I was on the forum I could read a subject but the back command would not go back to the subject list, it kept saying not responding. I stopped using Microsoft edge and now use internet explorer that is available on my laptop and the problem stopped. plus I also installed the google toolbar that I could not figure out how to install with Microsoft edge. Ken

Dick, my mom's sisters always drove Studebakers. If they were around today they probably wouldn't like Windows either. :-)
