I'm a little confused... How can I make sure that my iamge is 200dpi, if paint always displays it as 96dpi regardless of the height and width?

Open the image, click Resize on the Menu Bar at the top of the paint window and change the Percentage from 100 to 208 and click ok.

Both Horizontal and Vertical will change if Maintain Aspect Ratio is checked.

But, that does not increase the dpi right? Its just that the image looks larger.

Actually by resizing the image you are increasing the number of pixels it contains. Since standard  monitors have a fixed resolution of around 96 pixels per inch, a 200 dpi image will look more than twice as big as a 96 dpi image viewed on the same monitor.

Actually dpi (dots per inch) is used to refer to print resolution while pixels per inch is used to refer to display resolution.

Though a 96 dpi image may look good on the monitor, 200 to 300 dpi is the minimum resolution required to get acceptable print quality.
