    Photos won't open full size in Window's Photo Viewer...


    Okay... I feel like a complete idiot but for the life of me I can't figure this out in Windows 8.1.

    When I open a photo in Windows Photo Viewer (or Paint or Picture Library) the bloody photo is really small.

    The full-screen button on Windows Photo Viewer is disabled. What the heck is going on there?

    How the hell do I get photos to open full-size?!

    THANKS!

    Cheers,
    Terry

    This doesn't by chance have anything to do with my screen resolution being set at 3200 x 1800, does it?

    That still wouldn't explain why the full-screen button on Windows Photo Viewer is disabled though.

    This is driving me nuts...

    THANKS!

    Cheers,
    Terry
