    How can I view 1 Gif file after another, on my computer, with the Windows 7 Operating system?

    Thanks in advance.

    You mean like an automated slide show ... Or automatically or manually advancing thru a folder ??
    And are the gif Images animated ??

    Gif Images are a special format that can have transparency and/or animation
    But they do not make good pictures because they are limited to 256 colors.

    Windows 7 can have problems viewing animated gif images unless you have other Image viewing software installed.

    I was looking at your Avatar and wondering if you had other Image viewing or editing software installed ??
    And why you specified gif Images ??

    Avatars here at TSG can be 50x50 pixels … And if you‘ve donated to support TSG, they can be 65x65 pixels.

    Here’s a similar 50x50 Avatar with animation (blinking eyes) and background transparency .. If you want it.
    To see how they’ll look on the web, I look at them in FireFox or IE.
    To view them animated .. I use Irfanview as my system default Image Viewer in Windows 7

    Search for gif. Select "see more". Copy and paste to a folder and view with your favorite app.

    To view a Gif, I have to turn on Internet Explorer for each Gif. I have a lot of Gif's in a folder.

    I can't view one after the other.

    The Gif's are animated.

    I would like to manually advance through a folder.

    I don't have Gif viewing software installed.

    Thank you both for replying, the avatar and irfanview. I guess irfanview is the solution.

    In Irfanview .. Open a folder of gifs (or others) ...
    Open an image and double click on it .. this will put you in a full screen viewing mode.
    Now .. your Left n Right mouse key will scroll thru the folders .. I call this my Manual slide show.
    To return to a normal screen viewing mode .. Press on the scroll wheel .. (The center mouse key) ..
    or press enter on the keyboard.

    In a Normal screen viewing mode .. you can use the scroll wheel .. Of the keyboard Cursor keys < >

    Irfanview is very popular here at TSG .. Holler if you have any more questions.
    You should have no problems getting help.
