    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I suggest you to follow the methods below and check if this helps:

    Method1: Try to uninstall and re-install the Display drivers.

    You may follow these steps to uninstall and reinstall the Display drivers:

    • Press “Windows Logo” + “R” keys on the keyboard and type “devmgmt.msc” in the “Run” Command box and press “Enter”.
    • In the “Device Manager” window, search for the Display drivers, right click on it and then select “Uninstall”. On the un-installation window, if you have an option: “Delete the driver software for this device
      you may select that and then remove the corrupted drivers from the computer.
    • Follow the on-screen instructions to complete it and the restart the computer if prompted.
    Method 2: You can try installing the drivers in compatibility mode and check if this helps:

    • Press the ‘Windows key on the keyboard.
    • Type compatibility in the search box and then press
      enter
      .

    How to reduce size of window boarders

    After updating from W7-64 Pro to W10-64, the boarders for all applications, like Word, Adobe, Outlook, etc, doubled or tripled in size, with pop ups for printing expanding to larger than the entire screen.

    How may I reduce the size of these boarders. Thank you.

  4. How To Reduce Size of Photo?

    I just want to make sure that both the left and right sides of the photo are reduced equally.

    It'll look weird if the left side of the photo is reduced too much for example.

    How To Reduce Size of Photo?

    Virtually any Image Editor will do that.

    Within Windows 10, Photos App is easiest for that, though you could use Paint with some calculation.
    Others are IrfanView, Paint.NET.

    I use MSPaint [not the new Paint3D] on a daily basis and it has a Resize feature, experiment with various settings such as 50% or 200% to see the results.

    In Paint, make sure that Select on the ribbon at the top is set for 'Rectangular selection'. Click and drag to select an area of the picture, then click Crop on the ribbon to remove everything outside your selection. Make sure you use 'Save as' to save with a new name or you'll overwrite the original file - I'm guessing you'll want to keep that.

    The bottom status bar of Paint has three sets of numbers to help you see precisely what you are doing when you select the area to crop. Thee first pair is the horizontal and vertical position of your cursor in pixels while it is in the picture area, the second is the size in pixels of the area selected, and the third is the size of the original image. Note that the numbering of the pixels starts at zero, so the position of the top left pixel is 0,0.
     
  11. I've only got access to the inbuilt Windows Paint so I'll try it tonight.

    No - you also have access to the Photos app. Select Edit then Crop & Rotate. Set any aspect ratio you want to crop the photo.

    The Photos app is normally installed by default. If not,search for Microsoft Photos in the Store. The aspect ratio will be maintained when you crop the photo. I'm not aware of any photo editing program which crops equally on each side - you have to position which part of the photo you want to be in the cropping frame.
