Hi,

Recently I noticed that in My Pictures folder, none of the pictures or sub-folders have any names underneath them when viewing as thumbnails. The photo is still there, but no names. When i go in properties, the names are there, and the name shows whilst viewing as tiles, icons etc.

Can anybody help me to solve this problem?

Any help would be appriciated, thanks.

In my MyPicture folder when I select thumbnails I get an image and file name, but you are not getting the file name?

Try going to view, customize this folder and click on restore defaults button, see if that helps.

Whap application is being used to open these files? (right click on any file and look in properties/the "general" tab)?

Thanks for the reply. I have been unable to duplicate your problem, but with MS, the settings might be anywhere. As a work-around until a solution is found for WP&FV, there are several free applications that you can use; for instance, Google has (free) Picasa2, or IrfanView (free) includes a thumbnail viewer.

Highlight your "My Pictures" folder. Then, while holding down shift, double-right click on "My Pictures". Works like a charm!

Then if for some silly reason you want to make the filenames disappear again, do the motions described above once more and the filenames will vanish!

For what purpose Microsoft programmers designed this shortcut for, I have no idea.
