    Resizing photos using Windows Photos

    With W10, it no longer seems possible to resize photos, when using Photos.

    And I can't right click on a file/photo to chose how to open it. So I have to left click to open the photo under

    the Photo app, then go to the 3 dots, go to see more, then open with Paint in order to resize. This is really awkward and slow. Also with Paint, how can I move onto the next picture.......... or do I have to close Paint and start the process all over again
    for the next photo to resize????????

    Thanx B... but, w10 started OK but, on booting up this morning it failed miserably & am back to w8.1.

    Will wait for the June launch

    EDIT: Unfortunately also in w8.1 all fotos do not open saying I do not have the correct permission.

    Could it be because I chose not to create an MS account? ....thanx ....nick

    I don't think the fact that you didn't create an MS account is the problem; it's more likely a permissions issue. I have no problem with opening photos in Windows 10 or 8.1.

    I'm not in Windows 8.1 ATM, but try going to Windows Accessories>Paint>Open and navigate to your photos. See if you can open them from there.

    I just tried it on Windows 10 Build 10130 and it works just fine.

    PS. I downloaded w10 & updated my w8.1 spare HD to w10. Worked OK & liked it that afternoon but, next morning would not boot up so I use my flash stick & got w8.1 back.

    I s that a usual thing with the BETA version?

    No, this is not usual with Windows 10 Technical Preview.

    I would suggest that you mark this thread "solved" and open a new one under "Installation and Setup", describing your problems with Windows 10 setup. You'll get more help in that group.

    When you post, tell us:

    Which build you downloaded and installed.
    How you installed it on your "spare" Windows 8.1 hard drive.
    And anything else you can think of.
