hey.
i've just got a new laptop - running win xp pro.
i just went to resize a few images using the right click menu, only to find that there was no option to do so.
on my desktop (win xp pro) i can right click a jpg and say 'resize image' and windows does it all.
how can i enable this?
cheers

Hi Fergie. Are you accessing the graphics through Windows Explorer to right click?

yea, even just right cliking straight on the image file brings up the resize option on my desktop.

It's one of the Microsoft PowerToys for Windows XP

thank u very much!!

also, while you're all here, you know when you go to save something (like in word) it comes up a dialogue box and has shortcuts to places u can save them (like Network Places, my computer, my docs etc)
is there a way to add my own shortcut, or change one of the ones i don't use?

Cheers

Tweakui has a facility to change these 'Places'. XP Pro can do it via gpedit.msc, as well, but tweakui is probably easier and more universal.
