I am trying to SCAN a photo and save it to my SCREEN SAVER and at the same time enlarge it to fit the entire screen.


The photos in your computer can be used as screen savers (those files that pop up when you are idle).
1. Right click on your desktop and choose personalize.
2. Select Screen Saver
3. Select Photos
4. Click OK

All of the photos in your pictures folder will be your screen saver.

If what you want is this picture to be your background (the file that shows on your desktop all of the time)
1. Right click on your desktop
2. Select personalize
3. Select Desktop Background
4. Change the "Location" to Pictures from its setting of Windows Backgrounds
5. Select a picture
6.Click OK. It is automatically sized to your desktop.
