    What was the Windows version on which you used Office 2000, and what is the Windows version you use Office 2003 on? As far as I know, "Make all my pictures smaller" is a Windows XP feature.

    It was XPP and this one is XP Home. Would that make a difference?

    No, it is a Windows XP feature, not specific to Home or Pro. Try this:

    Select Start | Run..., then type<pre>REGSVR32 SHIMGVW.DLL</pre>

    Press Enter. Do you get the dialog now?

    Yes I do. Thanks. Will it hold after shutdowns and rebooting? I guess I could experiment with that.

    It should be a one-time action...

    ... until the next time it goes wrong ... <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Thanks Hans. I got distracted and forgot to check it before I left that location but I will tomorrow. Again, thanks.

    Hans

    It appears to be,as you said, a one-time action. It works after rebooting and after a shut down. Thanks again.

    Re: Emailing Photos (2003)

    I tried to run REGSVR32 SHIMGVW.DLL but my Office 2000 Windows XP Home can't find it. I did a search and search said it couldn't find it. I'd like to reduce the size of photos I email. How do I get the right .dll file?

    REGSVR32.EXE and SHIMGVW.DLL should be in C:WindowsSystem32. This folder is in the search path by default, so you should be able to run REGSVR32 SHIMGVW.DLL without specifying the path.

    If you want to check if the files are present, first select Tools | Folder Options... in Windows Explorer. In the View tab, make sure that the "Hide protected operating system files (recommended)" is CLEAR. If they are really missing, you may have to repair your Windows installation.

    I did the search as you suggested. The files aren't on my machine. So, I ran the Windows XP Home cd again. The files still aren't on my machine. Now what?
