Folder names dissapear in "MY PHOTOS"

  dnjl 15:38 05 Nov 2007

I am at present using laptop (without my usual attached mouse)and whilst looking to move a "folder" in "My Pictures" something happened and all the names that you normally see at the bottom of each folder have disappeard.
Please can anyone help me to get them back.

Can't wait until next Monday to get another mouse that I can attach and use like a normal desk top.

Hold SHIFT when opening the folder. Toggles filenames on and off.

brundle - thanks but I just tried that and it just affects the files within the folder not the folder. It's the folder names that have gone missing - the files inside the folder are still named.

Any more ideas?

It works for both files and folders as far as I know, and on this machine. Start at My Pictures with shift held down.

brundle: Thanks - it works - sorry about delay in thanking you - been busy with Dad's 80th.
