Picture Slide Inside Of Folder


On windows xp there was a way to make a picture slide inside of a folder. So what it would look like is. Say you have 10 pictures inside a folder. Upon opening that folder. There would be one big picture in the center of the screen, and underneath were tiny icons of all your other pictures. And all you had to do was click the left or right button to browse through them. Or simply click on another picture to view it.

Is there a way to do this in windows 7? Or am i stuck with just large icons and the slide show option?

Can't Choose Folder For Background Slide Show

I don't know when and why it happened, but now i can't choose my own folder with wallpapers for background slideshow. I am talking about control panel -> personalization -> desktop background -> picture location -> browse. When choosing my folder in browse i click ok and. Nothing happens. The browse window just closes and i do not see thumbnails from the selected folder. I just see previous selection of thumbnails.

Folder Picture Customization

I have windows 7 professional running upgraded from xp home. We have music on an external hard drive and on the computer. On both the external and the internal hard drive all our folders we had customized with the cd cover on the folder. It stayed present on them for about 3 weeks then out of no where most of the customizations fell off. This has happened with xp twice and now with windows 7 pro. I have been searching to figure this out and am at a loss. I really like the way the folders look with the cd cover on them, but dont want to constantly fix them. I have over 800 folders with cd covers on them. I need help.

Snap Feature Does Not Work On Inside Of Dual Monitor Setup

I have windows 7 home premium x64 fully updated. So far it's great. But i have two monitors, primary 1440x900 and secondary 1280x1024 with the secondary monitor on the right of the primary monitor. When i try to "snap" a window to the edge of either monitor that is next to the other monitor, nothing happens. I was wondering if this was a typical problem people were having or if it was just me and if there was any way to make it work or if there was a patch for it. (Google chrome's built-in "snap" feature can use the inside of the monitors).

Attaching A Picture In Outlook

I can open my pictures directly from the start button. I see all my photos and it says there are 2 locations. C:usersname my pictures and c:userspublic my pictures. I can navigate from the computer prompt to either of these directories. They both show up and i can access the photos. The problem. When i am using outlook and try to attach a picture, i navigate to c:usersname but there is no my pictures folder showing?

Alternatively, i can also open documents from the start menu and there are 2 folders listed as my pictures. I am denied access to both. I am logged on as administrator and the permissions seem to be set to allow me access. On my other pc, i see the same thing (2 folders), but i can access the folder that is showing as a shortcut.

I don't know if these situations are related, but i'm stumped right now on getting outlook to browse to a folder that i can access my pictures from. Any help will be appreciated.

Picture Import Settings

I want to change the import settings for my canon camera when importing photos using windows 7. I had already managed to do this once but want to adjust the settings again. However, when i connect my camera to my pc, it automatically starts importing photos based on current settings with no option to change.

The above is from another thread regarding the same problem i have. The dialog box with "import settings" flashes, then goes away before you can make changes. The person above was given a link to a boilerplate answer that doesn't address the problem.

Why does my desktop picture change to black. I know i don't have it set to change every so many minutes because i've not set that and it also just goes to black!My aunt's computer with windows 7 does the same thing.

Excel Insert Picture Does NotDisplay

We have 2 identical dell systems, one with xp and one with windows 7, both running office 2007. When i create an excel document on the windows 7 system and use the insert picture option, thedocument will open on other systems but the picture does notdisplay (just the outline of the box). If icreate this same document on the xp system everyone can open the document and see the picture. The file is being saved on a server running windows server 2003. Even systems running windows 2000 can open the xp version of the document. I don't know how to solve this problem other than to downgrade to xp (not a pleasant experience).

Media Center Live Tv No Picture, Just Sound

The live tv function in media center gives me a message that says "your tv does not allow display of this program through the dvi input source. Please choose another tv input source. " I can only hear the sound but there's no.

My tv tuner is a ati theater 650 pro. It is connected to my cable box through s-video. My tv is also connected to the cable box through hdmi cable. The weird thing is, the message disappears and picture finally shows up when i unplug the hdmi cable from my tv or from the cable box itself. The picture also shows up when the tv is turned on. When i first configured this, i was able to successfully see picture, sound, and even tested the recording capabilities with no problem. I tried to reconfigure the tv signal in media center several times andupdated the tv tuner's driversbut to no avail.

Message - No Disc In Drive - Can't Burn Picture Cd

I selected about 40 pictures from a gallery folder to burn to disc. I get a window that opens and says "files waiting to be burned to disc" followed by a list of the selected image files. I click 'burn to disc', and am prompted to put an empty disc into the cd-rom drive. After i do, and after closing the drive door, i get a 'checking disc' msg. In the window. In a few seconds the drive door opens, and i see this message: "there is no disc in the cd or dvd burner".

"Please insert a writable disc into the d drive". This drive plays discs fine, and i had no problems burning when i used vista, but after a hd crash, i upgraded to win7 and this is my first attempt at making a disc. Is there some compatibility issue here?. Device mgr. Says the device is working. The driver is up to date.

Windows.old Folder

After upgrading my laptop from windows vista 64 bit to windows 7 64 bit, i noticed that i have a folder on my c: drive called windows. Old. I was wondering if i can delete this folder as its taking up almost 50 gigs of hard-drive space that i would love to get back. My problem is, if i delete this file will my laptop become unstable?

If i can, how would i go about deleting this folder without deleting anything that is outside this folder? When i did my upgrade i used the windows easy transfer and still have the file that it created backed up on am external hard-drive.

Where Did Folder List Go?

I just received my new windows 7 computer in early april. I want to organize my files in folders and create new folders that make sense for the things i do and ways i use my computer. I went to windows explorer and there was nothing like that in there. I found the "where did the folder list go?" Area in the help files. I tried to follow the instructions, but i do not get results like those pictured in the help file. I was able to get a navigation pane, but that does not help me much if it does not let me navigate through my "local disk (c:)".

The picture in the help file shows that it would do that. I want a folder tree so i can see what folders are already there, and make new folders in places that make sense! I do not like to put stuff on my desktop wall paper. I only want important applications i use regularly there and i do not like clustering it up with files and folders. There is also other junk in the navigation pane like a "downloads" folder that does nothing to show me where it is located. I cannot even e-mail a file because i cannot find it, since i do not have a folder list. I can work from there if it will just show me where it is on the tree!

Folder Keeps Opening Up

Every time turn on my computer, the c:windowssystem32 folder automatically opens (full screen). Under one user account, it opens up completely, under another user account it doesn't open up but an error message opens up (about 5 or 6 times) saying that the folder should be associated with another file. This leads me to believe that the desired setting to change is in the user's settings someplace but i can't find where. Or i am wrong completely.
