Thumbnails are not working within windows picture and fax viewer, how can I add them back in to the viewer? They used to show up at the bottom of windows picture and fax viewer, much like they do in Microsoft's Office Picture Manager.

Re: Thumbnails are missing in windows picture and fax viewer?

Hello Sendone,

You can register or unregister shimgvw.dll to enable or disable WPFV:
Enable: Start > Run > regsvr32 shimgvw.dll

try that, that should work. :)

Thanks YTGeek...opening photos in any folder then > View > Filmstrip is very close to what I was able to do to get Thumbnail views inside of windows picture and fax viewer but all it allows in terms of editing is printing, clockwise & counterclockwise rotation; and renaming files and folders.

In this process of trying to resolve losing the Thumbnail view inside of windows picture and fax viewer for a friend, I have found that for myself, When I don't want to work in Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro, I like MS Office Picture Manager better than film strip views in a folder or the Windows Picture and Fax viewer. It does a lot more in the program itself in terms of viewing, editing, renaming and other functions and it is not at all complex to work with. :4-guns:

Some people including my friend might like the very simplistic manner of Windows Picture and Fax viewer along with a Thumbnail filmstrip view...the folder > View > Filmstrip may serve the same purpose as Thumbnail views inside of windows picture and fax viewer - Thanks YTGeek...

thanks for all who helped and any other Help...I need all the help I can get...:eek:
