This shall be my last question for a few days. You guys rock!! :love: 

Is there a way to have make the picture folders within Windows 7 have an XP
look?? with a spotlight of the 4 item groupings of images as in XP? Some Win 7 images peer out from the folders but one still can not tell what the image might be until opened.

Crlin, I took my Windows 7 to the Windows classic theme. This makes is look more like what I am use too. I don't care for all the fancy peek and gel look. However, the folders do not follow to give the old classic XP folder look where we had the appearance of 4 images to our eye prior to opening. I could always tell what I had and I miss this sooooo much! This was a deal breaker for me. I am going to stay with my 5 year-old XP desktop machine until it totally poops out. I have a newer laptop with Windows 7 and just can not get use to this OS for my everyday needs. I do alot of photo and image work. Why they did not give us a realistic view into our folders with this OS, is a real head scratcher?
