    slideshow (XP)

    Where is Picture Tasks? MS help directs me to Picture Tasks to find "View as Slideshow"

    My View doesn't give me slideshow as an option (my View options are filmstrip, thumbnails, list, icons). The picture folder I want to see as a slideshow is a sub-folder under My Pictures and I have checked to insure the folder type is "Pictures (best for many files)"

    When you open a picture file (.jpg, .gif, etc) does it open with Windows Picture and Fax viewer ?? If so, look at the icon menu along the bottom of the screen. One is of a presentation screen. Clicking that wil run a slide show of the images in that folder. If not, let us know what program your images are opening in.

    Thanks Doc - my nephew just resolved my particular problem of not seeing the Picture Tasks. The answer for me was to untoggle "Folder" under ViewExplorer Bar in Windows Explorer. That changed my screen view from directory folders on the left to Picture Tasks. Live and learn!

    I guess that's why we have a younger generation. To teach us old dogs new tricks. <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    Glad you got it worked out and thanks for posting back with the solution.
