Filmstrip view


H

H.B.

I have some windows that allow the filmstrip view and others that do not. I
have researched this and what I found was:

1. Select "View" - "Customize This Folder".

2. The folder properties multi-tabbed dialog box will appear. Underneath
"Use this folder type as a template" choose "Pictures" or "Photo Album" as
desired.

3. Click "OK" to close the dialog box.

The "View" - "Filmstrip" option should now be available.

I have followed the instructions, but I still don't get the option for the
filmstrip.
Any suggestions? I am running windows xp home editions.

Thanks in advance,
hb

See if this helps:
Open either MyComputer or Explorer.
On the Menu bar click Tools > Folder Options...
Under the General tab > Tasks pane select "Show common tasks in folders".
Click Apply > Ok.

If the option View > Filmstrip still is not available, complete the steps again
to customize the folder.

No, it was already set the way you recommended.
Any other ideas?

Yes, I have several folders with a few and some with a lot of pics that I am
unable to get the filmstrip option. But there are a few, mostly those in a
folder called "my pictures" that this option works fine.

I'll keep searching for a resolution although it doesn't look good at the
moment for your particular issue.

Don't you need the .ini file and icon for folders where you want to use
filmstrip mode? I was just looking at my own setup and all the ones where I
have filmstrip available have the .ini file and pictures icon.

Just a thought,

Twayne

Images only can be in the Folder to View as a Filmstrip!
If there a mp3, htm, txt, wav, ex..ex.., file types in the Folder it will
not view as Filmstrip.
But as a Thumbnails you can View all file types!
For in Thumbnails it will make a Thumbnails images of your Pictures to view!

For Filmstrip is a images Display Brower only viewer!!!!!!!!!

Hi..I don't know if this fellow sorted out why he couldn't get filmstrip view in his folder. However, if you have this promblem, go to "View" > "customise this folder" > and under "Use this folder type as template" choose either "Picture" or "Photo album" it was probably set to "Documents"

I hope that this has been of help :)
