You can do that in paint, if you'd like to...personally I prefer programs that give me more"lee way" like Zoner Photo Studio 12..which I found here: FREE Great Programs for Windows 7
If all you'd want is setting a picture as a desktop background: just drag/drop it into Internet explorer or Firefox, right click it and click "Set as background" .
(I just tried it in paint and it worked without a hitch. So I didn't get any save request ??)



Edit: Sorry if the clip was bigger I would have used a thumbnail from the start. No need to use an extra program

Image Resizer Powertoy Clone for Windows

Integrates directly into the Windows 7 shell so you can just right click -> resize whatever pictures are highlighted. Could not be simpler or cleaner and better than installing more third party software.

Do you have MS Office installled?

Office has a program, which most do not know exist, which is rather useful.

Do following:
WIN | type Microsoft Office Picture Manager | ENTER

WIN is the key with the wavy flag.
