Print Pictures Window is wrong size

My Print Pictures window is smaller than the content of the window, but it can't be resized so I can't see all the options. (see attached image)

Anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks

Dave

Hello
It sounds like you need to adjust your screen resolution.
If adjusted correctly, the window will fill the whole screen.

There is plenty of space for the window, I screengrabbed only the window. I tried changing the screen resolution to 1600 x 1200 (my monitor's max resolution) and it didn't make any difference - the Print Picture window is still too small for its content.

Did you ever find a solution to this, as I am having the exact same problem? It makes printing pictures in certain situations nearly impossible because I can't properly set the options. I've searched all over online, and this is the only place I've seen this problem mentioned.

Resize the picture using Irfanview name and save it. Once saved, right click on the picture, then choose print. IrfanView - Official Homepage - one of the most popular viewers worldwide

*** Irfanview will decide it's your choice for taking over your pictures ... so, click a picture in your "Pictures" library folder, right click on it, choose "always open with" (make sure the box is checkmarked) and choose the default program you want.

Thanks for the suggestion, but that is not a solution to the problem I'm having. The window for the dialogue box itself is the wrong size, so that I cannot see the printing options for printing pictures. What size to print the pictures is only one of the options. I need to know how to fix that problem.

No, sorry, I ended up just printing the picture using a different PC that didn't have this problem.

Try opening the picture in irfanview like Jacee suggested, then instead of resizing it, print from there. I just tried it, and it looks like it should work.
