how do I view gif files in vista in XP I just clicked on them and up pop the windows photo viewer which let me view the gif files (ie all the images were played)
in vista it only shows the first image there is no way to "play" the GIF files...anyh one else noticed this or no a fix for it.

I installed IrfanView and set it as the default viewer for gif files.

Vista will not open animated gif files by design - it is regarded as an old and obsolete format by MS
