How to increase the Resolution in MS Paint?

In MS Paint, "Image > Attributes" shows the resolution at 96 dpi.
Is there a way to increase that Resolution?

Thanks.

96dpi is the hight I believe you can get in Windows. Unless maybe you use like Adobe Photoshop or GIMP. Windows Paint is very limited to editing images.

resolution? you mean like the size right? try using photoshop or any other photo editing software. paint is quite limited in functionality.

@mark, the max resolution for mspaint is 96dpi
the alternative is to download GIMP. It's free
