    WORD folders (Office 97)

    All of a sudden, all of my WORD docs folders include a file named PPThumbs.ptn

    I can't open this file since none of the applications open a file with that extension. Seems innocuous, but I am curious as to where it comes from. I thought it was a PowerPoint file, but PowerPoint can not open it. Any ideas?

    Hi,

    This is something inserted by the PaperPort program. It may allow display of one or more of your documents as thumbnail images in a PaperPort folder.

    Charles, thanks a heap. I have used PaperPort for quite a while and these files just appeared. Nice to know they are harmless.
