  1. Windows Photos - how to have "Zoom to Fit" always on when opening pictures


    Is there a way to enable an always-on Zoom to Fit for pictures in Photos?

    I don't like opening pictures to see the actual size of them (most of my pics are small/smaller and some way too big) so would be more convenient if they would all zoom to fit automatically and it would also be convenient when switching to the next/previous pic in a folder that Zoom to Fit stays enabled so you don't always have to click the Zoom to Fit icon for that. Hope somebody understands what i mean.

    side note: is it possible MS updated Photos recently? I feel something changed as I though my smaller pics used to be bigger on opening.

    Photo/WPV default zoom level


    Photo/WPV default zoom level


    Hello guys,
    I wish I could set the default zoom level of my default photo viewer (I can choose Photo app or Windows Photo Viewer or some third program too).
    I want the default program to be able to open/switch within photos at the default photo size (100% zoom of the photo) and not with the default screen size (100% zoom of the screen size).
    Any idea how to do that? Maybe some registry key to edit? Any software to suggest?
    Thanks for your help, Luca.

    Windows Photos - how to have "Zoom to Fit" always on when opening pictures

    Can't open pictures

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you are getting error when trying to open Pictures on your computer. I'll certainly assist you with the issue.



    However, please let us know:



    • May I know the default application that is set to open pictures?
    • Which build version of Windows 10 is installed on the computer?



    It could be possible that the application set to open pictures is not working properly. If Photos app is set as the default application to open
    pictures, I would suggest you to refer the troubleshooting steps mentioned in the article

    Fix problems with apps from Microsoft Store
    .



    Let us know how it goes.



    Regards,

    Nikhar Khare
