Uhhh... I'm having a hard time thinking of a single image viewer that doesn't offer a full screen view option... Including the built-in Windows one... Are you looking for a specific feature within it? –  Aeo Sep 9 '10 at 14:38

Just use the built in Picture and Fax Viewer.

Right click over the image and select Preview (if it's bold then it's the default action so double-clicking will do the same thing.

Then click the slide show icon (screen) or press F11 to start the slide show.

Esc takes you out.

You can download 3rd party programs that do this as well which might have more configuration options. One such is:

"Pausing" the Windows Photo Viewer slide show (to view a single image fullscreen) is not immediately obvious. Ashamed to admit it took me a minute to figure this out, but maybe it will help someone else: in the default Windows Photo Viewer slide show, right click on the photo and select "Pause" in the dropdown. –  probackpacker Mar 20 '13 at 20:12

Vote for IrfanView, freeware, great photo viewer and some minor image editing as well.

  • You can use windows Built in Picture and Fax Viewer. . You can go to full screen mode when clicked on Slide Show But disadvantage is that it automatically changes images if found in the current directory unless paused

  • Inzomia image viewer enables you to see a single image in full-screen . I found it here . But the software is not free
