    in Windows 7 it was possible to resize during edit.

    I searched online for instructions of how to do it with Windows 10
    I received the following reply

    1. Select the photos you want to resize, and then on the Edit tab, in the Properties group, click Resize.
    2. Click the Select a size list, and then select a size for your photos. For a custom size, in the Maximum dimensions box, enter the maximum width you want your photos to be.
    3. Click Resize and save.
    However I was unable to find the Properties group in the edit programme

    Any idea how I can find it?

    Found this on MS site:
    "You can resize the photo to the desired size through Photo Gallery app. Follow the below steps to resize the photos.

    1.Open the Start menu, type Photo gallery in the search box and click on Photo Gallery (Desktop app).


    2.Accept the agreement to install Window essentials 2012 if prompted (Enter the admin credentials if needed).


    3.Now you may open the photo location from the left navigation pane on the photo Gallery app.


    4.Select the photo and right click and select Resize."

    I feel like an idiot, I completely forgot about the edit options in paint! Thank you so much! You just ended a 45 minute headache!
