Hi all.

I want to re-set the default values in my mspaint 'Attributes' dialog box. I want to open up the mspaint screen so that the grey field shows close to the right and bottom edges.

After re-setting the width and height default values in the registry - it hasn't made the alteration in the mspaint window.

The default remains at 4.14 x 3.11 after I've set it in the registry to be 17.01 x 12.76 (Shown in my screenshots as pixel values).

Thanks for any help.

Why mess with the registry & screw things up ?
The method to change things was already there in Paint.

See picture below--

medab 1 -- Thanks for replying to my inquiry, but I'm looking for an answer to my question - not alternative suggestions.

I often make double-panelled labels for DVD cases, and I need a lot of free space on the mspaint window.

I don't want to have to click-and-drag anything. I want to be able to open up mspaint and by default there's only a small strip of grey edging there.
