Is there a setting to fix this? No problem at all with jpgs.

Hi Ben,

Can you check and see what program is the PNG associated with ? Just right click on any of the PNG file and go to properties there see what Program its set to open with ?
Try to change it to Widows Photo viewer see whether any improvement is there

Hope this helps
Thanks for the reply. Pngs and Jpgs are both associated with Widows Photo viewer. For what it's worth, I've converted the pngs to jpgs and am making sure my screen capture programs save to .jpg. I know Png is a more complicated format, so I'll just chalk it up to W7 not playing well with large directories of them...
