Need easy way to adjust workspace size and kill sound

Overall
Ease of Use
Customer Service
Value For Money

Overall Opinion: Basically very good, but without easily accessed way to increase size of window or ways to kill those appalling sounds (short of turning off sound altogether) I've limited its use. The range of tools is impressive and yet perfectly suited to young users. Intuitiveness of design is excellent

Pros: Intuitive interface. Extensive but not over-facing range of tools and effects. Clearly designed for the young or inexperienced user.

Cons: Appalling sounds which accompany virtually EVERY click of the mouse. When, as a teacher, I used this in a classroom, I had to mute all machines. The workscreen is too small for modern screens. There needs to be an on-screen icon to enlarge this to full screen. The option to dispense with sound altogether would make life infinitely easier and more comfortable, especially in the class AND home environment.

Alan Sturgess is using Tux Paint every other week since at least a year or more.
