    How do I select multiple pictures for printing on one sheet in Win 7 Explorer? There are different layouts available but no obvious way to select more images.
    Windows XP was much easier to use than this one!

    I'd go to a picture folder, left click and hold it down, drag my mouse across several or either hold down ctrl and select several and release mouse. Right click the blue space highlighting the images and choose Print
    Next dialogue you have the option of single page or resized to fit more in different sizes on 1 page. Look on right side for different size formats.
    Now how was xp easier than that?

    XP is easier because it has a wizard which walks you through it without leaving you guessing! It also has thumbnails which are useful to me because I view files in Explorer as details. The thumbnails save me having to switch to icon view if I don't happen to recognise the filename.
    Thanks for doing Microsoft's job for them by giving me your suggestion. Fortunately I bought Windows Professional so I can still do it the easy way....

    Try setting the view to "Content". That is shows a thumbnail and metadata.

    If you have Windows Live Photo Gallery installed, you can load the folder where your photos/images are located and select the check boxes in the upper left corner and choose "print", on the top tool bar. From there you can scroll through the choices made before doing the actual print job.

    I have a similar question... using the above example, is there a way to print say 3 copies of the same page with out having to print 3 times.(I hope that made sense!)

    Yes. what you did not see is this attachment at the bottom of the print window.

    Thanks to JoeP and CLiNT. The Images in "Content" view are a bit on the small side to distinguish between similar pictures but I will use that for a while and see how I get on. Windows Live Photo Gallery seems to work pretty much like the XP wizard with only the slight drawback of having to open another program if already working with Explorer, so that's a good substitute.

    veegertx. Your attachment is of two pictures which you have prepared for printing and you must have selected both files in Explorer which couldn't be easier, but my point was that it isn't easy if working in "Detail" view. I like detail view because it is small and compact, gives me file size information and I only need to view images if I am going to print something.

    I did see attachment... did you not see that it only pertains to the number of times you can reproduce a picture on a page, not the number of pages that contain the same picture? In other words, I want to print 2 pictures on a page. I now want those same 2 pictures to be copied over let say 5 pages. In order to do it I would have to go thru and print those 2 pictures 5 times. The control you speak of and have shown in the attachment JUST allows the number of pictures to be copied on ONE page. (I hope that explains my question better!)

    You should be able to click "Options" in the lower right and then Printer Properties. Somewhere in the Printer Properties dialog you can select the number of copies. I can't say for sure where that will be as it is somewhat different for each printer.

    When you go to print, it does not go to printer options, it just prints, it does not even offer print preview, which would afford me the opportunity to select the number of copies I need. ( Please try it for your self and see if you can do it!) I believe there is solution other than to print each page separately!

    I did try it. That dialog with the printer selection, the page layout of the pictures, and the number of copies dialog has an options selection in the lower right. That is how I got to the printer properties.

    I had never done more than 1 page myself but as JoeP said Printer Properties are in that Options lower right. Think it would set that as default then.
    Low of ink right now or I'd try it
