I'm using windows XP Pro with all service packs and updates.

What I'm wanting is this....

When I use the slideshow function of windows picture and fax viewer the
images are not filling the screen. I usually run in 1024 x 768 rez but
even if the image is much larger, it does not fill the screen in wp/fv
slideshow mode.

How do I change this so that the image fills up my screen when using
the slideshow feature? Preferably without having much smaller images
take up the entire screen and distorting, but i'll take what I can
get.

Thanks, Sindail

I don't know how to do it with the XP slide show nor do I know if it's
possible. What I can suggest is you take a look at XNVIEW (www.xnview.com)
which is free and has a great slide show function. It's simple, it's gui,
it's light, and it's free. What more could you ask for? :) Actually I
generally use that instead as well as many of it's other features.
