    The option to show the contents of a folder of pictures in Filmstrip mode has disappeared recently on my PC, no idea what could have caused it.

    Anyone experienced this before?

    Also, where is the list of dial-up internet passwords stored on XP cos I want to delete it - I think it might be corrupt.

    Thanks.

    You can only access the 'Filmstrip' view in the 'My Pictures' folder.

    The folder is a subfolder of my pics, and it DID give me the option a few weeks ago. I can't get Filmstrip anywhere.

    Besides, Microsoft must be stupid to restrict you to having to use My Pictures. That's just ridiculous. SHOOT BILL GATES!

    Incorrect statement. You can use the 'filestrip' view in any folder containing pictures (GIF, JPG, BMP, etc.) and customized as a picture folder.

    Simply right click on the folder (in explorer), click the customize tab, and pick 'photo album.'

    Thanks Madmatt!

    I thought that the My Pictures restriction was beyond the realms of stupidity even for Moneybags Bill :)

    I didn't have my folders set to Photo Album mode, that was my problem.

    Thank you MadMatt... I learned something from that post too. I never knew that.

    What I don't understand is why Vikash keeps insulting Bill Gates... that's flaming and it's quite uneccessary.

    Sorry Vikash it's "Stone the bloody crows". What we do to Poms doesn't bear repeating! [lol]
