in xp all photo`s taken on a fortnights holiday were placed in one folder, with its name and start date underneath, clicking on it would open all the photos as thumbnails. in w7 the folders have the date they were down loaded and only contain photo`s taken on one date. can they be displayed just like they were in xp and if so how

I cannot remember how Win XP shows the pictures.

In Win7 If you open the picture folder, look to the top right you should see two icons next to the ? mark. One icon changes the view allowing you to see large icons. The other icon next to the ? will change the preview pain allowing you to have icons on the left with a larger preview of the picture to the right. Just try the different views to see which you like.

This is worth a read - the last bit .

I assume when you look in the date folder the photos are shown as thumbnails?

thanks to both of you for this info. hopefully i can now transfer all 3000 pics into some semblance of order similar to xp. why on earth do they have to change something that works perfectly.
