Isn't the default program to view photos supposed to be Microsoft Image
Viewer? If so, mine has disappered. Does anyone know where I could look for
this to reinstall?

Thank you

Did you ever have it? AFAIK, Image Viewer is new in Windows XP. In Windows
98/98SE/ME (and, I think 2K) the default image viewer for JPEG and a few
others is Internet Explorer. If you want to use a different one, you're
talking about an app that must be added on. Many machines come pre-loaded
with several other apps, typically including a handful of image viewers.
Some are provided by Microsoft Plus! packages, Office and Works Suites,
etc., and many more are from third parties, but I don't recall any named,
precisely, "Microsoft Image Viewer".

Try the utility free from www.irfanview.com
which most MS NG mavens prefer.

WinME does have a predecessor version of what WinXP has. One just has to "customize the
folder" with the "image preview". Then you can; play a slideshow of graphic files in the
folder, zoom in, zoom out, rotate and print a graphic or make its view full page. All
within the Explorer Folder View. Win2K has a similar facility but can not do a slideshow of
the graphic files within the folder.

Now that you mention it, I *do* remember that. Out of all my clients, I have
exactly one ME machine in the mix, and she just handed that down to her
husband and got a new XP machine, <s>.

That is not Microsoft Image Viewer.
On my Win98 SE, that will install Kodak Imaging.

I didn't say that it was, or intend to suggest it.

You will note that the OP wasn't sure what used to be installed.
but as she uses 98, it couldn't have been Microsoft Image Viewer,
so I discounted that part of her post in favor of pointing her
to the default image viewer for 98, which is,
as you stated, Kodak's product.
