Can anyone tell me how to use my own photos as folder icons please?

  sierra 15:04 18 Sep 2003

are you using xp

  Charlie 15:05 18 Sep 2003

yes-Professional

  sierra 15:11 18 Sep 2003

I'm not sure about professional but in xp home you right click on the folder then select properties/customise/choose picture. scroll to where the photo is and apply it

Yes, same in Pro but it does not work. The picture appears to be accepted but does not appear on the folder. I am wondering if I need to change format and/or size?

Change your folder view to thumbnails.

  Charlie 15:29 18 Sep 2003

If you mean the folders where the pictures are, these are already in thumbnail.

  sierra 15:32 18 Sep 2003

No, say the folder you wish to add a photo to is in my documents then change the folder view in my docs to thumbnails.
