I've been using PIXresizer for years.  It will do batches and has options for doing every subfolder in a selected folder.

I always like irfanview when I used windows.  It seemed to do pretty much whatever I needed.  I don't do much with images now, but I'm on Linux and I use GIMP when I need to do anything.  Sometimes it's like bringing a wrecking ball for finish carpentry (overkill), but it does what I need.

For simple touchups and resizing I've use PhotoFiltre for years.   It does quite abit more if you know what to do.

I've never set down and got familiar with all the extras you can do with it.  For "big" jobs I use GIMP.

 

Photofiltre is available here...

if you're willing to spend cash on this (iow, the quality of your finished image file affects your livelihood, and you can't afford to compromise on quality), I'd go with geuine fractals pro edition or (slightly less pricey) Alien Skin's Blow Up (both can be had from amazon).

This is my preferred image resizer: https://imageresizer.codeplex.com/

 

"About

Image Resizer for Windows is a utility that lets you resize one or more selected image files directly from Windows Explorer by right-clicking. I created it so that modern Windows users could regain the joy they left behind with Microsoft's Image Resizer Powertoy for Windows XP."

I've always use the FREE Faststone Photo Resizer which is also capable of batch resizing. It has a portable version that does not need to be installed or can be run from USB Flashdrive.

For quick and dirty resizing you can use Paint, free and built into Windows.  CTRL+W is the short cut and you can resize by percentage or pixels.

I tried your tip out of curiosity and it closed my browser and took me to the Desktop.  What's up with that?

Ctrl-w (Resize) if you have an image open in Paint. Ctrl-w is also a shortcut for "close window" in applications like browsers, etc.

I do believe the shortcut was intended for when the paint application is open. Not a shortcut to open the Paint application itself. As according to list of Windows 7 paint shortcuts Ctrl+W Opens the Resize and Skew dialog box.
