Hi Northumbria 61 Cannot find a zoom slider, when the "zoomed in" picture comes up there are approx 28 colours in bottom left corner and various brushes and tools up on the left side of pic. I have the zoom in and zoom out controls etc along the bottom edge but no slider.

**PERN From your description it looks as though your pictures may be set to open in MS Paint which is not really a photo editor. Right click on pic and see what it says under "open with".

Ry right click on your picture and from the drop down list select MS Office Picture Manager - if not in list select choose default program and set it at Picture Manager.

Control Panel - Default Programs - Associate a file type or protocol with a specific program - scroll down to find .jpe, .jpeg, .jpg - Description next to that should be Microsoft Picture Manager - if not click on those 3 above and then click on Change Program - you should now get the option to change it.
