How can you print photos from the Microsoft Photos app without white borders?

Trying to print from Windows 10's Photo app on a 4" x 6" paper and am getting white borders even though I have checked the Fill Page option under Fit.

If I go into File Explorer and right click Print, and choose Fit Picture to Frame, it works fine. 

How can I print without borders from the Windows 10's Photo app?

Changing to full page does not resolve the issue. White borders still appear.

See the image below and the white borders around the picture.

Crop  / cut it. Or if the printer comes with some kind of software, install it

The problem is with the "Photos" app that comes with Windows 10. That is the app that leaves white borders even though I have checked the Fill Page option under Fit.

What especially makes this frustrating is that if I use File Explorer, find a photo, then right click and choose Print, the Print Pictures dialog that comes up has a "Fit picture to frame" check box. When I use that, it fills the frame and the white borders are gone.

Why would Microsoft release Windows 10, auto setup photos to be used with their Photos app and then leave the printing function so unpolished, especially when the needed feature exists when you right click from File Explorer.

Really frustrating and doesn't make sense.

Using a different app, like an app that comes with the printer, will work, but just frustrating that Microsoft fell down on making this a cohesive picture viewing and printing experience.

For reference, here is the Print Pictures dialog with the "Fit picture to frame" check box. Why can't this check box be in the Photos app?
