I use Windows Photo Viewer to open photos and select Print. I then get a window up with different size options.

Transfer them to your PC. Open in Irfranview > print > adjust size > print

Ponytail: from memory, XP doesn't include Photo Viewer - I think it's a W7 thing. As wiz-king has suggested: download and use IrfanView. I've used it for years and, for free software, it's remarkably powerful and easy to use - and has some excellent functionality, especially if you install the plug-ins (e.g. 'save for web'.)
