Windows 7 Picture Viewer

Hi Guys
I'm pretty new to this computer stuff. My old laptop with XP had a picture viewer that when i looked at my pics (mostly holiday snaps) in the slide show mode the picture filled the screen. Now on my new laptop with windows 7 the slide show plays at a smaller size with big black bands down each side? When i click on fill screen with previews up all the individual pics do fill screen but as soon as a start slide show the play back at smaller size. Is there a setting or something i cant find? Any help would be appriciated.

hi Jimporte, and welcome to sevenforums,

the standard windows 7 picture viewer is a bit basic, to say the least.

try downloading windows live photo gallery from microsoft.

it's free, and is a substantial improvement.

post back if you need more help

Another excellent option is Faststone Image Viewer - a lot more complete than all the windows viewers.

Some freeware Image Viewer reviews .. Here

I use Irfanview for the little jobs .. before I fire up Photoshop
The others are good but seem to be a little bloated with features that slow them down.

Some more advance Freeware editor reviews are Here
Basic, Mid level and Advanced Image Editors are discussed.
