    I do not want a program to open it because I see the ribbons etc. from the program. I just want to get a simple photo from my phone to my pc .
    I used to just connect the usb cable and open Galaxy till I saw the photo then switched but clicking on Galaxy does nothing now.

    TY

    What is the operating system of your PC?

    I think I found my error. I have Windows 10 x64.

    If I 'save as', then the photo will not have all the program's features around it.

    If you use the file explorer in Win 10 there is no "program" interface. You can just copy or move files very easily.

    I guess if I do not use a program I don't have to fuss.
    Sometimes an alteration is necessary or a program is used to open the photo so then I would have to save, or not?

    Since I don't know what you are doing, I can't say if you would need to save or not.

    I am scanning a photo to desktop. Then I am opening it. If a program is used, its toolbar etc is included.
    I would like a pure photo with no toolbars etc. Windows 10 photo app does a fair job of giving one a somewhat pure picture.

    I don't know of any photo editing or viewing program that won't have a tool bar, but most will have a setting, most likely under the View menu, to go Full Screen, or Hide Toolbar, if you want to look at the pure photo. Some will also have a Slide Show feature that will allow you to view a whole folder in full screen, one at a time.

    Try Irfanview. Its free. No catches, ads, malware, etc. http://www.irfanview.com/

    Even Paint, the program included with Windows for a long time, now has a full screen mode.

    I never considered full screen mode, thank you.

    In Windows F11 will cause almost any program to go Full Screen.
    it is a toggle, use it again to restore the screen.

    IrFanView has been my favorite image viewer for over a decade.

    and Paint has been my favorite, fast and dirty, image editor to strip out part of a Full Screen Capture.

    if you are a shortcut keyboarder, IrFanView has shortcuts for almost everything it can do.
    I love it, learn the shortcuts, and you can use it with blazingly fast speed.
