    Default 'My Pictures' folder not showing thumbnails

    I have Windows ME. My 'My Pictures' folder used to show small pictures of my jpg files, in the thumbnail view, but now it doesn't - it just shows the icons. How can I get the pictures back, please? - Stephen

    System restore? Try reinstalling Picture it Express? Try creating another folder in My pictures and transferring pictures to it? You have clicked on View and chosen Thumbnails I take it?

    Try Windows Explorer > navigate to the folder in question and open it > View > Thumbnails > that should give you a thumbnail view of everything in there.

    If you have Thumbnails replaced by List then you will get a list of all the pictures there with there icons but clicking once a icon should bring up to the left a single thumbnail of that picture, a slow way of doing it if you have 100's of pic's to search through.

    Possible corrupted folder ? Try opening a different folder somewhere else and try the Thumbnail View in that folder instead.

    Better programs for viewing a large number of images would be a dedicated viewing program.

    InFranView is a free one available from

    http://www.studiofx.co.uk/iview336.exe

    ftp://ftp.stack.nl/pub/users/rem/viewers/iview375.exe

    ThumbsPlus is a good one but costs as does ACDSee which is also good.

    there is a known fault where another graphics program breaks the thunbnail veiw. MS have a fix. have a look for it at MS.

    my usual fix is to install ifranveiw http://www.irfanview.com/ seeing as it is a good veiwer and basic editor (and is free!)
