    I have gone blank and need your help to get back on track. When wanting to view digital images (mostly .jpg) I sometimes get a listing of programs to use to view these files. One of the choices is "View a slideshow of the image using Windows Picture and Fax viewer" which will give a slideshow that is a full screen image. I want to do this most often but I can't always get that menu picker to show to make the choice and I really don't know where the file is that will give me this slideshow. How do I initiate the menu prior to viewing or is their a program that I can just run to get this full screen display in slideshow format.? Thanks for your input.

    Are these pictures on your computer or on a flash drive or something else? Are you saying you sometimes get the chioce in an insertion autorun menu or in a right click context menu or somewhere else?

    If its just pictures in a folder on your computer, Faststone Image Viewer is nice program with a very nice full screen slideshow component. I use it all the time in preference to Windows Picture and Fax viewer. Picasa 3 also has a funky new Photo Viewer that slideshows full screen. In the case of both though you have to go to the folder with the pictures in it, either with the browser function or just using windows to access them (right click>Open with) So you can't really initiate a menu but just starting the program you're going to use ahead of time should work.

    Both the Picasa 3 and Fastone took care of how I wanted to do the job. Thanks much Fairnooks. Have used Picasa 2 a lot but liked the email portion of Fastone even more (which I didn't know about). So, I'm ahead on both counts. Thanks again.
