Hello,
I recently downloaded 'Image Resizer', one of PowerToys tools, from
Microsoft's website. For some reason this program did not work. Has any
one tried this program yet?

Many thanks.

Kent

It doesn't appear when you right-click an image stored in your PC?

Hi Kent,

That PowerToy adds a context-menu entry named "Resize Pictures" for image
files. If that option does not appear, type these commands in Start/Run:

regsvr32 shimgvw.dll
regsvr32 phototoys.dll

the menu does appear. But when I choose a size (eg. 800x600), it doesn't do
anything to the photo or create a copy with the specified size. What's
going on here?

Thank you.

Kent

Kent,

No idea. But, investigate if a shell extension is blocking this function.
Try ShellExView:

That's fine, but how? I couldn't find any way to determine who might be
affecting whom...

Follow the "Shellexview" part in that article, and you'll understand.
