A. XP includes a new type of view for folders that contain graphics files (e.g., GIF, JPEG, TIFF). This Filmstrip view displays a large version of the selected picture in the top right-hand pane of Windows Explorer and a smaller version of all pictures in the folder in the bottom right-hand pane. To activate this view, you must configure the folder as either a Pictures type or Photo Album type by performing the following steps:
- Right-click the folder and select Properties from the context menu.
- Select the Customize tab.
- Under "Use this folder type as a template:", select either Photo Album or Pictures and click OK.
- From the Windows Explorer View menu, select Filmstrip to view the pictures from within the selected folder.
