That is something I was curious about also. I did some checking. It
looks like from the Image window, select Edit/Preferences. In the
panel on the right look for, "Inital zoom ratio", and set to
1:1 (not Fit to Window).
Initial zoom ratio
You can choose either to have images, when they are first opened,
scaled so that the whole image fits comfortably on your display, or
else shown at 1:1 zoom. If you choose the second option, and the image
is too large to fit on your display, then the image window will show
only part of it (but you will be able to scroll to other parts).
