howdy all. I have just started playing with a new lappie loaded with windows XP home and have been having trouble trying to set up my default view when I open a folder as thumbnails. The system always seems to want to open files in icon view unless they are located in the My Pictures folder(then they are opened in a filmstrip). I work with mostly digital images and this is annoying. Also is there any way to open multiple window and fax viewer windows so that you can compare two photos side-by-side? Thanks for any help on this one!
