How can I disable automatic image resizing in Internet Explorer 6/7?
Internet Explorer 6/7 has a feature that causes images that are larger than the display area to automatically be reduced in size, thus removing the need to scroll around the picture. While nice in concept, this feature can be quite annoying. Luckily for us, it can be easily disabled.
To prevent IE from automatically resizing images follow these steps:
- Open Registry Editor.
- In Registry Editor, navigate to the following registry key:
- Create the following value (SZ):
and give it a value of NO.
Note: As always, before making changes to your registry you should always make sure you have a valid backup. In cases where you’re supposed to delete or modify keys or values from the registry it is possible to first export that key or value(s) to a .REG file before performing the changes.
- Close Registry Editor.
- Close and re-open Internet Explorer windows for settings to take place.
You can also disable the auto picture resizing by going to Internet Explorer > Tools > Internet Options > Advanced > Browsing and removing the checkbox.
