(At least I assume they are .gifs.) When viewing a web page that attempts to show a lot of different screenshots, i.e., Palm software, is there a keyboard command that will allow me to stop the changing view so I can take the time to read it?

It's frustrating when you only get 2 seconds to view a screen capture before it snaps view after view in front of you. (Like a freaking MTv video almost!) I've tried lots of combinations with the "Shift" - "Ctrl" - "Esc" - "Alt" etc. keys but haven't found anything that works yet.

Anybody know of a way?

There are actually some Pop-up stoppers that have this feature. It stops the animated gifs from animating. Now I just cant remember what ones do this... I'll see what I can find.

I think we're on the same page. I do want them to open, just want to 'freeze' or hold the blasted screen capture still long enough so I can read the content before advancing to the next one. I could certainly make a more informed purchase or download if I could see what's mostly a fragmented blur!

Thanks for the idea and good luck with the hunt. I can't believe someone hasn't come up with a keyboard command or some sort of Java app that would slow things down to a more 'digestable' speed. Appreciate your help.

Tools/internet options/advanced tab. scroll down to multimedia. un-check "play animations in web pages". They will shut up.
