When scrolling through My Pictures, clicking on one pic for editing, I click on edit ,under the pic and up comes a highly zoomed in version of the pic.I have obviously clicked on something somewhere which I want to reverse. Can anybody help please

Check your "zoom slider" at bottom of screen.

Hi Northumbria 61 Cannot find a zoom slider, when the "zoomed in" picture comes up there are approx 28 colours in bottom left corner and various brushes and tools up on the left side of pic. I have the zoom in and zoom out controls etc along the bottom edge but no slider.

What OS and are you using MS Picture Manager?

I am running windows xp so I presume it is MS PIC MANAGER

**PERN From your description it looks as though your pictures may be set to open in MS Paint which is not really a photo editor. Right click on pic and see what it says under "open with".

Hi Shellship Rt click on pic and up comes WINDOWS PIC, KODAK GALL, INTERNET EX,ADOBE PAINTSHOP, and PAINT.

Ry right click on your picture and from the drop down list select MS Office Picture Manager - if not in list select choose default program and set it at Picture Manager.

Control Panel - Default Programs - Associate a file type or protocol with a specific program - scroll down to find .jpe, .jpeg, .jpg - Description next to that should be Microsoft Picture Manager - if not click on those 3 above and then click on Change Program - you should now get the option to change it.
