    I recently lost my view "filmstrip" options in windows picture viewer. I've
    read some of these similar problems and answers. Running REGSVR32 /i
    SHIMGVW.DLL and trying to customize in a folder/properties didn't give me an
    option to customize. I also tried under tools/folder options/general/tasks
    to choose "show common tasks, but it stays gray (inactive) even when I try
    apply and ok. I don't know how I lost it, but I really use it a lot and need
    to find out how to get it back.
    Any ideas??????????????

    =================================
    If you right click a folder and choose...
    Properties...do you see the Customize tab?
    If you do...open the drop window and choose ...
    Pictures / Apply / OK.

    After running the regsvr32 /i shimgvw.dll
    command....did you receive the dialog box
    that says:

    DllRegisterServer and DllInstall in shimgvw.dll succeeded

    I do not see the option "customize" when I right click a folder, only general
    and sharing tabs appear.
    Yes, I did get the "succeeded" message after running the regsvr32 /i
    shimgvw.dll
    What exactly is that function for?

    =============================
    Read the following article:

    Customize tab is missing in Folder Properties
    http://windowsxp.mvps.org/customizetab.htm

    =============================
    That command forces Windows to reinstall
    shimgvw.dll (Windows Picture and Fax Viewer)
